Connecticut Resources Recovery Authority to collect electronics - but check to see if you are welcome to drop them off first

HARTFORD — The Connecticut Resources Recovery Authority collects electronic devices and is bulk paper shredding and recycling bulk paper this spring.
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.
The schedule is available here.
The site says: "Due to the expiration of the Bridgeport Project and the Wallingford Project, CRRA no longer provides electronics recycling in or for the following cities and towns: Bethany, Bridgeport, Darien, Cheshire, East Haven, Easton, Fairfield, Greenwich, Hamden, Meriden, Milford, Monroe, New Canaan, North Haven, Norwalk, Orange, Shelton, Stamford, Stratford, Trumbull, Wallingford, Weston, Westport, Wilton and Woodbridge."
