Marlborough – The Marlborough Rotary Club will sponsor a Community Recycling Day to collect unwanted computers, electronics, appliances and other items. Residents from all communities are welcome to bring their items to the Whitcomb Middle School, 25 Union St., Saturday, Oct. 26, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The cost per car- or truck-load is $30. Accepted items include: electronics of all types – computers, CPUs, games, accessories, cell phones, VCRs laptops, cameras, cables, wires, keyboards, mice; all electrical equipment – small appliances, motors, shop equipment, heaters, fans, extension cords, lamps; vehicle batteries; large appliances – washers, dryers, microwaves, AC units, freezers, refrigerators with Freon; yard and lawn equipment – mowers and snow blowers (no fluids); metal and plastic – children's toys, yard furniture. Televisions are $.50 per pound and monitors are $10 each. For those who have only one or two items for disposal, there will be a reduced single item fee.

“This project benefits everyone involved,” Club President Dave Walton said. “People can rid themselves of all their metal and plastic junk; gain space in their homes for a very low cost; the environment is better for recycling all this junk; and the Marlborough Rotary Club Foundation will make a percentage of the fees to continue the club's service to children and families of our community, literacy projects, clean water projects, and more.”
