TV & CRT Monitors Recycling Fees Increase

Because of our increasing costs to recycle the toxic materials inside TVs and CRT Monitors the District has had to raise fees for that service.

Beginning November 1st, televisions and CRT monitors under 46 inches will cost $10.00 to recycle and televisions over 47 inches will cost $20.00 per television to recycle.

All other electronic devices remain at the long-standing recycling fee of $5.00 for up to 5 items.  The drop-off site for electronics recycling is OmniSource, 1430 Meyer Rd.  M-F 9-5, Sat 8-12.

Tox-Away Day is our annual event providing Allen County residents the opportunity to safely dispose of unwanted household hazardous waste.

These materials, if not disposed of properly, can be dangerous to our health and the environment.

Last year, we collected 27 tons of household hazardous waste at this one-day event.
