Cherokee Residents Can Recycle Home Electronics on Oct. 13

Set the date on your calendar, and start collecting all of those computers, printers, stereos and other home electronics that have outlived their usefulness.

Yesterday's laptops and desktop computers are old news. As fast as technology improves, a computer bought just a few years ago is ancient and won't run most current software (and games).

So what do you do with all of those old computers, CD-Roms, cell phones, copiers, printers and other electronics that are just so much clutter in your home? Bring them to the Electronics Recycling Day on Saturday, Oct. 13 at the Cherokee Administrative Building. But don't bring your home appliances – washers, dryers, refrigerators and freezers are among items that won't be accepted.

The collection will take place from 9 a.m.-1 p.m., so get up early to load up the car. Once you arrive, you don't even need to get out of the car. Volunteers will remove your items for recycling.
