E-rase Your E-waste Sept. 8 & 9 Sidney & Fairview

This year's annual E-rase your E-waste event is set for Sept. 8 and 9, so clear out those closets and storage sheds and recycle all of those damaged and obsolete electronics for free.

"We've had a number of questions from people asking about our fall event, so we are excited to let everyone know that the dates have been set," event coordinator Heather Luinstra said early this month. "Once again we have partnered with Yellowstone E-Waste Solutions, Billings, and we will host a joint event with the Town of Fairview. Collection times for the weekend event in Sidney are from 3-7 p.m., Friday, Sept. 8, and 9 a.m.-noon, Saturday, Sept. 9. The collection site will be at the Richland County Shop, right next to the fairgrounds.

Fairview's collection event is on Saturday, Sept. 9 from 10 a.m.-noon. The Fairview location will be at the water station on 9th Street.

"Just like many other markets that we are seeing changes in lately, this year we will see a few changes to what our recycling partner is able to accept to recycle. Unfortunately, this year, we cannot accept any TVs, and we cannot accept any large copy machines. However, our recycler does accept all rechargeable batteries and even car batteries, as long as they are in good shape and not damaged," said Luinstra.

As in past years, local businesses, hospitals, school and other agencies and organizations with large amounts to e-cycle are asked to make an appointment by calling Luinstra at the Richland County Health Department 406-433-2207 or emailing [email protected].
