Electronic recycling business offer dropoff services

A Grand Junction recycling company will accept computers, electronics and appliances during a free dropoff event scheduled as part of the ShareFest event.

E-Waste Recyclers of Colorado has scheduled the event for

9 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 28 and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 29 at its facility at 655 N. First St. The firm operates out of a warehouse behind what was once Ashley Furniture.

The business will accept computers, cellular telephones, office equipment — virtually any device that plugs into an electric outlet or uses batteries, said Ken Burns, co-owner along with Jeffery Ferguson. The business also will accept televisions and computer monitors with cathode ray tubes, but charges to dispose of those items. Prices range from $10 to $35.

During ShareFest, volunteers from different denominations and churches in the Grand Valley join in community service projects, including cleaning.
