E-waste recycling in Dorset

DORSET - The Fall Electronic Recycling Day is being held at The Dorset School on Saturday, Oct. 13 from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. The Dorset Teachers' Association and the Dorset Energy Committee will be co-hosting this event for the local community to raise money for the school's technology fund. This event is open to everyone. It is not limited to Dorset residents.

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.

Items that contain Freon, such as refrigerators, air conditioners, and dehumidifiers will 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. 13. Because of storage space and cost of removal they cannot accept any of these items prior to or after the drive.

Organizers of the recycling day thank Good Point Recycling (www.retroworks.net) for their donation of 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.
