FARMINGTON — The 10th annual Earth Day Every Day! electronics recycling day will give the greater Farmington area and Franklin County an opportunity to responsibly dispose of household electronic devices, otherwise referred to as “e-waste,” instead of disposing of them in a way that could harm the environment.

As a community service project, unwanted, old and broken electronics will be collected for the Maine Department of Environmental Protection approved recycling and disposal Earth Day Every Day! event from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 21, in the Farmington Hannaford parking lot, Route 2 and 4, Wilton Road, rain or shine. 

Old South First Congregation has partnered with EPA-approved eWaste Solutions of Maine to provide an opportunity for responsible recycling of TVs, computers, scanners, photocopiers, monitors, printers, microwaves, DVD and VCR players, stereos, phones, gaming and other electronic devices. For a list of other electronics that will be accepted, go to

The e-waste drop-off is not limited to Farmington residents. There is no set fee for the disposal service; however, free will monetary donations would be appreciated to support Old South Church’s community service, outreach and youth programs. Volunteers will direct traffic and be available to help unload electronics from vehicles.

For more information regarding disposal and recycling contact the church office at 207-778-0424. No early drop-offs.
