Mercer County to host electronics recycling, document shredding event

Post Date:10/27/2017 10:47 AM
TRENTON, N.J.—The Mercer County Improvement Authority will host an Electronics Waste Disposal Day on Saturday, Nov. 4, 2017, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., for County residents who wish to recycle electronics.

The event will take place at Parking Lot 4 on South Broad Street, across from the County Administration Building in Trenton, and will be held rain or shine. While no registration is necessary, please note that the event is open to Mercer County residents only, and attendees will need to show proof of residency, such as a driver’s license. No commercial or industrial waste will be accepted.

Also on Nov. 4, the MCIA will offer a document shredding service. Up to eight boxes or bags of paper may be discarded.

Mercer County Executive Brian M. Hughes reminds residents that New Jersey’s Electronic Waste Recycling Act requires that certain electronic devices and components be discarded in an environmentally safe manner. The Mercer County E-Waste Day ensures residents that their electronic property is properly discarded.

Acceptable used electronic items include: camera equipment, central processing units (CPUs), circuit boards, computer mouses, copiers, electric wire, fax machines, keyboards, laptops and peripherals, microwave ovens, networking equipment, phones, printers, scanners, stereo equipment, televisions and VCRs.
