Spring E-Waste Collection Event Returns In May


Organizers for the annual “E-rase your E-waste” collections are happy to announce the return of their spring e-waste collection event this year.

Jackie Couture, chair of the E-rase your E-waste Committee, reported this week that the group is planning a spring collection on Friday and Saturday, May 13 and 14th in both Sidney (Fri and Sat) and Fairview (Sat morning only) and a fall collection on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 9-10 in Sidney.

“We’re pleased to be able to offer another springtime collection and to once again be working with the Fairview community to offer the service to city residents there as part of their annual spring cleanup,” Couture said in making the announcement.

The spring event had to be cancelled last year because of a backlog in CRT monitors and television sets in recycling warehouses across the country. That backlog was cleared in time to host the fall event last year, Couture said, and has not returned, allowing for the return of the group’s regular May collection event in 2016.

Under the E-rase your E-waste program, area residents can recycle their damaged or outdated electronic equipment for free, although there is a small charge for televisions, and for those needing recycling certificates or hard drives destroyed. The program was instituted in Sidney in 2005, only the second of its kind in Montana and the first in a rural area.

More details on the May 2016 event will be available shortly.
