That stack of DVDs gathering dust on the bookshelf or pile of old cellphones in the kitchen drawer finally can be taken out of the house guilt-free during an electronics recycling day at LSU on Thursday.
The Capital Area Corporate Recycling Council and LSU will host the collection day from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the old front nine parking lot off Nicholson Drive at LSU. The event is open to the public.
Items that will be accepted include telephone systems, security systems, cellphones, video games, digital cameras or recorders, digital picture frames, stereos and much more. The complete list is available at cacrc.com/what.html.
Some items that aren’t accepted include televisions, furniture, appliances or copiers.
“Sometimes people will misunderstand and bring appliances like old microwaves,” said John DeVore, marketing specialist with the CACRC.
Items that still work are refurbished and then made available to sell at a discount to low-income families, veterans and senior citizens or are given to schools and community centers. Many items also are offered for sale to the public at CACRC’s warehouse at 1400 Main St. Monday through Friday.
