The SCMUA will be conducting Electronic Waste Recycling Events on October 10, 2015. This program is available to Sussex County residents, businesses, local school districts, municipalities and county agencies. The SCMUA conducts these special events to regulate the disposal of electronics, or “E-Waste” that contain cathode ray tubes (CRT’s), lead, mercury, nickel, cadmium and other hazardous materials, and remove from the waste stream pollutants and toxins that would otherwise find their way into landfill and the leachate generated. YOU MAY BRING UP TO 5 (FIVE) ELECTRONIC ITEMS FREE OF CHARGE PER VEHICLE ON THE ABOVE DATES ONLY, TO THE SCMUA RECYCLING FACILITY IN LAFAYETTE. YOU MAY BRING ON E-WASTE DAYS: Computer Systems, VCR’s, Copiers, Printers, DVD & CD Players, Radios, Televisions, Fax Machines, Stereo Equipment, and Cell Phones. MICROWAVES ARE CONSIDERED AN APPLIANCE AND WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED AS E-WASTE. THEY CAN BE DISPOSED OF AT 13 CENTS PER POUND AT THE BAGGED GARBAGE AREA DURING NORMAL BUSINESS HOURS.
