Essex County will hold its next Computer and Electronics Recycling Day on Saturday, Oct. 19, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The collection is sponsored by the County of Essex and the Essex County Utilities Authority. Due to the ongoing construction of the Essex County Public Works Building, the collection location has been moved to 125 Fairview Ave., in Cedar Grove next to the old Essex County Hospital Center.
Items being accepted include computers, monitors, printers, fax machines, scanners, telecom equipment, speakers, televisions, keyboards, main frames, VCRs, stereos, DVD players, toasters, irons and cellular telephones. Smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms will not be accepted.
The collection is free and open to county residents who must show proof of residency. Commercial businesses may not drop off materials.
