Terra State to host fifth annual Community Recycling Day

In observance of Earth Day, Terra State Community College is hosting its fifth annual Community Recycling Day. On April 22, Earth Day, from 2 to 6 p.m., area residents can drop off a wide variety of items that will be recycled instead of ending up in landfills.

“This is my first year heading up the community recycling event, and I’m hoping, along with our committee, that we can help to recycle even more than we did last year,” said Michael Ryan, Assistant Professor. “The weather hasn’t been the best the past two years so we’re hoping it’s warm and sunny and people really turn out.”

Electronic items that will be accepted include: computer CPUs, monitors ($5 charge), speakers, keyboards, mouse, electric typewriters, word processors, televisions ($25 charge), sweepers, fans, stereo/boom box, copiers, printers, game consoles, telephones, small kitchen appliances, ham radio equipment and just about anything with a power cord except large kitchen appliances, dehumidifiers, air conditioners and any device containing Freon.

In addition, AccuShred, one of the event’s co-sponsors, will accept confidential papers which will be shredded on site. This is aimed at helping area residents protect themselves from identity theft. Another co-sponsor, the Ottawa Sandusky Seneca Solid Waste District, will accept batteries, including Ni-Cad, Ni-MH, Li-Lon, Ni-Zn, alkaline and sealed/gel cell lead. No wet cell or automotive/marine batteries will be accepted. Another co-sponsor, Goodwill Industries, will accept all kinds of shoes and books as well as clothing in any condition, small housewares, small furniture and aluminum cans.

Turn into the Terra campus at 2830 Napoleon Road, Fremont, and follow the recycling day signs. For more information, call Michael Ryan at 419-559-2116.
