The event - which is open to everyone and is not limited to Dorset residents - is being held to raise money for the school's technology fund. All items will be accepted free of charge. Acceptable items include computers (laptops, desktops, and servers), printers, ink and toner cartridges, monitors, UPS battery backups, stereo equipment, satellite dishes (any size), game consoles (Wii, Playstation, etc), digital cameras, cell phones, blackberries, MP3 players, and small household appliances such as toasters, fans, hair dryers, and more.
Items that contain Freon, such as refrigerators, air conditioners, and dehumidifiers can not be accepted. Large appliances such as stoves and ovens also cannot be accepted.
Donations are being accepted and proceeds will go towards the school's Technology Fund.
The Dorset School will only be accepting items at the drive on Oct. 19.
Due to storage space and cost of removal they cannot accept any of these items prior to or after the drive.
Good Point Recycling (www. retroworks.net) has donated time and manpower to help make the drive a success. Good Point Recycling is an electronic recycler based out of Middlebury that services Vermont, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York and Rhode Island from their Vermont headquarters, and the southwest from their Arizona warehouse.
