In the face of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, organizers have cancelled this year's 2020 Spring "E-rase your E-waste" e-cycling event, originally scheduled for May 1-2 in Sidney and Fairview.

"We just weren't sure that we could maintain proper social distancing and other safety procedures to protect both our community participants and volunteers, as well as our e-cycler's employees," local Coordinator Heather Luinstra said this week. "However, we hope to hold our fall event as usual on the weekend after Labor Day, so hang on to your e-waste. We'll provide you another opportunity to recycle your damaged and outdated electronics in September, assuming the pandemic has subsided by then."

Luinstra noted that support for the e-cycling event remains strong. Now in its 16th year, the local "E-rase your E-waste" program has collected more than a half million pounds of outdated electronics from this area.

Additional information on dates and times for the fall event will be announced later this summer, she said.
