It’s time for Emmetsburg residents to clean out old computer and electronic equipment. These items will be picked up during E-Waste and Brown Goods recycling next week.

What is considered E-Waste? What are Brown Goods? Basically, this includes all types of computer and electronic equipment.

Items to be collected include computer equipment such as mouse, hard drive, lap top, desk top, circuit board, keyboard, speakers, external modem, monitor, server, scanner, mainframe, CD Rom, printer and fax.

Other items that will be collected include cell phone, typewriter, VCR, photocopier, pager, telephone, television and stereo. Kitchen items will be collected, including can openers and toasters.

No microwaves or vacuum cleaners will be collected.

Collection dates are Tuesday, April 24, and Wednesday, April 25.
