The City of Madison, Best Buy, and Cascade Asset Management will sponsor a computer and electronics recycling collection on Saturday November 11th from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.
The Computer Recycling Roundup will take place at the City of Madison's Transfer Station at 121 E. Olin Av. The Transfer Station is located between the Alliant Energy Center and the site of the new City swimming pool at Goodman Field.
There will be a $5 charge for each monitor. A fee of $25 will be charged for most TV's. Because of special sponsorships from manufacturers, there will be no charge for any Sharp, Panasonic, Quasar, or Technics brand TV's brought into the event.
In addition to TV's, cell phones and monitors, we will accept all computer parts and computer related components, such as CPU's, printers, mice, speakers, and scanners at no charge. We are also accepting stereo equipment, VCR's and DVD players at no charge at this event.
The City of Madison and Cascade Asset Management have recycled over 500 tons of computers and other electronics since the program began in 1998.
