Save the date! E-rase your E-waste organizers in Sidney have announced the dates for their annual fall collection event: Friday and Saturday, Sept. 7-8. MonDak area residents are invited to bring their damaged and outdated electronic equipment to the event for free recycling. Now in its 14th year, E-rase your E-waste has recycled more than 435,000 pounds (217 TONS!) of electronic waste through 2017!

In announcing the collection date, organizers noted that restrictions on recycling of certain items from last year remain in place for the Sidney event, particularly regarding CRT monitors / TVs.

“Unfortunately, our e-cycler still cannot accept any monitors or televisions with cathode ray tubes (CRTs),” event coordinator Beth Redlin noted. “But most other electronic devices are being accepted.” Those include computers and their components (printers, scanners, keyboards, flat screen monitors, etc.), cell phones, cameras, VCRs, cable TV boxes, fax machines, copiers, stereos, game boys and specialized electronic equipment used in businesses such as hospitals, law enforcement, manufacturing and even the oil field.

Option for recycling CRTs

There will be more information on the Sidney event coming soon, Redlin said, but noted in the meantime that those with CRT monitors to recycle can properly dispose of them at another recycling event set for Williston this coming weekend. “They’re able to take the CRTs there,” she said, “but there is a charge running from $20 to $40 depending on the size of the monitor or television.”

“Again, we’re letting everyone know about the ongoing restrictions on CRTs for our Sidney event now so that area residents with CRT monitors or TVs can take advantage of the recycling effort in Williston if they wish,” Redlin said. “Our goal in developing “E-rase your E-waste” has always been to encourage and facilitate proper recycling of waste electronics to protect our environment and human health.”

The Williston event is being hosted by North Dakota Recycling Services at 409 1st Street West in Williston. Event times are Friday, Aug. 24 from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Central time and Saturday Aug. 25 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m, Central time.
