Wallingford CT Offers Electronics Recycling

Recycle your electronicsIf you’re like us, you probably have some old electronics laying around that you don’t know what to do with: a broken DVD player, an old radio missing a few tubes, or maybe a computer monitor that would cost more to fix than replace. If this sounds like you, here’s some news you can use.

Wallingford residents can now drop off unwanted or broken electronic items at the town’s recycling center located at 157 John Street. Items can be dropped off on the second Saturday of every month from 8AM to 4PM. Accepted items include:

  • Computers (desktop and laptop)
  • Monitors
  • Printers
  • Televisions
  • Keyboards
  • Mice (the computer kind!)
  • Fax machines
  • Stereos/radios
  • Modems
  • Telephones
  • VCR/DVD/CD players
  • iPods
There is no charge for this recycling, but each household is limited to dropping off seven (7) items per visit. Here are the dates for electronic recycling for 2012:

    Excellent advice, Jeff! I suggest using something like DBan (Darik’s Boot And Nuke) or Jetico’s BCWipe Total WipeOut to erase your drive’s data. And of course, there is always the option of removing the drive, installing it in another machine and reformatting it for continued use. Thanks for commenting, Jeff!
