Techcycle Saturday is a free technology recycling event. One more event will be conducted this year, from 9 a.m. to noon on Sept. 23 at 220 W. Hospital Street.
Several members of the East Texas Board of Realtors will volunteer with Keep Nacogdoches Beautiful to collect recycled items this weekend, according to KNB Executive Director Katie Blevins.
“Techcycle Saturday is a great volunteer and sponsorship option for groups and businesses,” Blevins said. “It’s an opportunity to get your names, and faces, in front of a large number of people while performing a service that benefits the environment and affects the sustainability of our community.”
Items accepted are computers, including towers, flat screen monitors and laptops, hard drives, printers, cables, mice, keyboards, DVD/VCR players, projectors, radios, telephones, cell phones, networking equipment/routers, copiers, fax machines and cords/wires.
Items not accepted include TVs, CRT monitors, major appliances, such as washers, dryers and refrigerators, cameras, small household appliances, such as blenders, toasters, coffee makers and vacuum cleaners, ink and toner cartridges. Best Buy in Lufkin will accept TVs for recycling for a fee.
Electronics recycling is also accepted at Staples, 4608 North St. Acceptable items include computers, monitors, laptops, printers and other items. Items larger than a printer or computer monitor will not be accepted.
