A one-day electronic disposal that’s open to the public is taking place Saturday.
The Superior Watershed Partnership is hosting its own household hazardous waste collection in Marquette. The event is open to not only households, but also to schools, churches and business as well.
“This is just an opportunity for the community to bring all their old and unwanted electronics that no longer work. We’re accepting everything from computers, T.V.s and old appliances. It’s a free community event for Marquette County, otherwise this kind of stuff either ends up laying around as junk in our basements or end up in a landfill. So were just trying to give the public an opportunity to recycle them,” Superior Watershed Partnership spokesperson Natasha Koss said.
Most types of electronics and home office equipment but other items, such as refrigerators, air conditioners or any item containing “freon” will cost $25 per item to dispose of.
The event will be held at the City of Marquette Public Works building located at 850 W. Baraga Ave. on Saturday, September 21st from 10:00am to 2:00pm.
