Residents of participating towns can bring anything made of paper, especially items that could be used to steal an identity. Plastics must be removed before bringing the paper for recycling.
The electronics are dismantled into raw materials, such as copper, steel, aluminum, glass and plastic, and sold to companies that turn them into new products.
Collections are open only to residents of towns that participate in CRRA’s Mid-Connecticut Project. Other residents who want to recycle their electronics can call their local public works departments or electronics retailers or check with the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection for other opportunities.
Electronics and paper from businesses will be turned away.
The spring schedule, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. is:
‰March 31, Madison, Hammonasset Beach State Park, 1288 Boston Post Road. Electronics only.
