Schools, businesses, public facilities and residents in Clark, Garland and Hot Spring counties can participate in a free regional Electronic Waste Recycling Event from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. tomorrow and Saturday at three different locations.
Garland County residents can drive in, drive through and drive out of the Church Street entrance at the rear of the Hot Springs Convention Center to drop off electronics for recycling. Items accepted include cell phones, televisions, large and small computer equipment, MP3 players, video game players, communication systems, copiers, printers and plotters, audiovisual equipment, fax machines, medical equipment, microfiche readers, modems, cameras, calculators, tape drives, test equipment and more.
Hot Spring County residents can bring electronics to the Hot Spring County Solid Waste Authority, 1904 East Page Avenue in Malvern. Clark County residents can bring their electronics to the Clark County Fairgrounds, 1501 Highway 67 South in Arkadelphia. This location closes at noon on Saturday.
The event is designed to handle large volumes of recyclable electronics, but residents can also bring smaller quantities to the event. It is sponsored by the Southwest Central Regional Solid Waste Management District in cooperation with the Hot Springs Solid Waste Department. For information, call 321-6911.
