Butte's annual electronics recycling event is June 16

The National Center for Appropriate Technology will  hold its Electronics Recycling Event on Tuesday, June 16, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at its office, 3040 Continental Drive.

The event is sponsored by NCAT and Butte-Silver Bow County. The recycling will be handled by Yellowstone E Waste, a DEQ-certified company.

Among the items that can be recycled are most kinds of computer equipment, telephones, small appliances, audio and video equipment, and such household items as cords and power strips. Computer laptops, surge protectors and video gaming systems can also be recycled, as well as car batteries, calculators and satellite dishes.

This year, all items except televisions and monitors, are free.

Items that can't be accepted include air conditioners, major appliances, vacuum cleaners, alkaline batteries, and light bulbs, fluorescent bulbs or ballasts.

"This event helps keep electronic waste out of our landfill, lowering the impact on our environment," said Kathy Hadley, NCAT's executive director. "We appreciate all the folks in the Butte area who recycle and who have joined with us for the last nine ecosystem desert years to keep our landfills free of this e-waste. We are pleased to again offer this service to our hometown community, and look forward to another record-setting year."
