Local residents are invited to bring their items to Harper Junior High, 4000 E. Covell Blvd., between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. “Pop the trunk, and volunteers will lift out your recycled items for you,” a news release said.
Items accepted are monitors; televisions; desktop and notebook PCs; VCRs; stereo equipment; CDs; speakers; keyboards; mice; PDAs; digital cameras; zip drives; telephones; cell phones; printers; copiers; laser and multifunction scanners and fax machines; microwaves; small household appliances such as toasters, mixers and blenders; and vacuum cleaners with the dust bag removed
Not accepted are large household appliances (i.e., refrigerators, washers and dryers), furniture and hazardous household waste such as batteries, car batteries, paint, pesticides, used oil, cleaning supplies, fluorescent light bulbs, water heaters and tires.
