Electronics Collection Event Today

The village of Grayslake is hosting event to help keep old electronics equipment out of landfills.

Do you have old TVs taking up space in the garage? Yesterday's models of computer monitors gathering dust in the basement? Don't know how to get rid of it all? Bring it to the Electronics Collection Event this weekend.

Hosted by the village of Grayslake, the event is in response to a state law mandating that as of Jan. 1, 2012, landfills no longer will accept electronic items such as televisions, computers, computer monitors, laptops and printers.

Instead, residents can take advantage of the Electronics Collection Event from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, June 25, at the Public Works Facility, 585 Berry Ave., at Route 83, north of Route 120 and south of Washington Street.
