Don't Throw Out That TV!
Or that old computer or printer. New state regulations mean electronics devices can't be thrown out with your garbage.
Planning on using you tax refund to buy that new TV or computer? Great, invite us over to check out when you do. But when it comes time to get rid of the old unit, don't throw it out with the trash.
A new state law that took effect in January prohibits trash haulers from taking away "covered devices" – televisions, monitors, computers and laptops or any peripherals like printers or keyboards.
The municipality is alerting residents of the new regulations and asking them to dispose of any electronic devices at one of the designated e-waste recycling events sponsored by the county or by eForce Compliance. There's one coming up Saturday, March 9 at the parking lot of St. Helena's, 1489 DeKalb Pike in Blue Bell.
