E-Waste Collection Saturday in Dublin

An electronics recycling and canned food collection event will be held from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday at Ashland Inc., 5200 Blazer Parkway.
The event offers free, safe disposal of electronic equipment for consumers and businesses using the services of Possitivity Green.
The event includes a canned food drive for Operation Feed.

The electronics recycling and food collection event, sponsored by the City of Dublin, Ashland Inc., Smurfit-Stone and Possitivity Green, also provides an opportunity to collect food and funds for Mid-Ohio Foodbank's Operation Feed campaign, which provides assistance to individuals and families in need.
E-waste includes cell phones, computers, printers, copiers and LCD monitors among other items. When discarded in landfills, these items contribute to the release of hazardous chemicals and harmful toxins into soil and streams.

Cracked monitors, household hazardous waste, televisions and stereos will not be accepted for recycling. Individuals with more than five items to recycle should contact Possitivity Green for a scheduled pickup.
For more event information, please call 614-846-4877.
