Don't toss those old computers, monitors, cell phones, and land line
telephones, printers, cameras, PDAs, televisions, DVD players and other

instead, and keep pollutants out of our landfills.

the corner of Perryville Road. Free drop off, 7 a.m. - 4 p.m., Monday through
Friday; 7 a.m. - Noon Saturdays; closed Sundays. Only electronics with circuit
