Electronics recycling on Iron Range

There’s a place on the Iron Range to send all of those old electronic devices that no longer are needed.

Mesabi Range College’s Virginia campus, 1001 W. Chestnut St., is hosting a free electronics recycling event in its west parking lot from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

Here’s a list of the items accepted at no charge.

  • Computers, monitors, printers, laptops, TVs, cell phones, stereo equipment, microwaves, large household appliances

And the ones that cost money to recycle

    • $10 each: wood speakers; broken-glass TVs/monitors
    • $25 each: refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, dehumidifiers
    • $30 each: wood console/projection TVs

Items that won’t be accepted include those containing biohazards, hazardous waste, liquids, florescent bulbs, smoke detectors and radioactive materials.

An optional data-cleansing service is available for $10 per drive for Department of Defense-approved hard-drive cleansing.
