W.Va. recycling event nets tons of electronics
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A recent recycling event collected more than 35 tons of electronics for disposal.
The Department of Environmental Protection said that's the highest total collected since its Rehabilitation Environmental Action Plan began sponsoring free recycling events a year ago.
Residents dropped off televisions, computers, printers and other electronics during the Sept. 15 event at the DEP's headquarters in Charleston.
The DEP said additional recycling events will take place across the state later this year.
