Got old electronics you want to get rid of? You can drop those off to be properly recycled at the Cincinnati Recycling & Reuse Hub on Saturday, May 6.
The recycling event will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Hub warehouse at 911 Evans St. in Lower Price Hill. Guests are asked to enter the parking lot from Woodrow Street.
There is a $10 fee per car to recycle electronics, and there will be other fees to dispose of items like TVs, computer monitors, refrigerators and smoke detectors due to their hazardous waste components. The Hub prefers cash payments but says credit cards can be taken also.
Biohazardous items, like glucose meters, and household hazardous waste items, like thermostats that contain mercury, will not be accepted. All other electronic items can be dropped off.
The Hub says Indianapolis nonprofit RecycleForce will de-manufacture everything and shred all hard drives to protect your privacy. Plastics, glass and metals are sold to build new items, and hazardous elements are disposed of properly.
If you are unable to make the recycling event, you can also drop off electronics at the Hub during regular business hours on Thursdays from noon to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
