FARMINGTON — The seventh annual “Earth Day Every Day!” electronics recycling day will give residents of Franklin County an opportunity to responsibly dispose of household electronic devices, otherwise referred to as “e-waste.”

Old and broken electronics will be collected for Maine Department of Environmental Protection approved recycling and disposal from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 25, in the parking lot adjacent to the Farmington Aubuchon Hardware located on the Wilton Road.

No early drop-offs.

Old South First Congregation, UCC of Farmington, has partnered with EPA approved “e-Waste Recycling Solutions” of Auburn to provide an opportunity for responsible recycling of TVs, computers and laptops, monitors, printers, photocopiers, scanners, microwaves, DVD and VCR players, stereos, camcorders, fax machines, phones, gaming and other electronic devices.

For a list of other electronics that will be accepted go to www.ewastemaine.com.

There is no set fee for this disposal service, however, freewill donations will be accepted to support Old South Church’s community service and outreach programs.

For more information, contact the church office at 778-0424 or 491-5919.
