NEW PROVIDENCE – The County of Union will sponsor a recycling event for electronic equipment and unwanted paper documents on Saturday, Oct. 22, so county residents can get rid of unwanted computers, televisions and other electronic equipment, and shred old personal documents in a secure and environmentally proper manner.
The special recycling event will take place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Alcatel-Lucent Technologies facility, 600 Mountain Avenue, New Providence.
All residents of Union County are eligible to participate at no cost. There is a limit of six electronic items and/or four bags/boxes of paper per car.
Electronic equipment that will be accepted on Oct. 22 includes computer monitors, hard drives, modems, keyboards, CPU’s, mice, printers, scanners, speakers, televisions, VCRs, fax machines, telephones, and circuit boards.
All that residents need to do is drive to the site with their electronic equipment and unwanted personal documents. Workers at the site will unload the vehicles. Pre-registration is not required for this special collection, but proof of Union County residency is required.
Refrigerators, washers and dryers, microwaves, and air conditioners will not be accepted.
A complete list of the materials that will be accepted on Oct. 22 is available at the Union County Bureau of Recycling and Planning website: www.ucnj.org/recycle .
