Old computers and other electronic items can be disposed of for free at the City of Kingman Public Works Yard this weekend. The event is from 9am to noon on Saturday, March 25 at 3700 E. Andy Devine Ave.

Area residents are encouraged to discard their old, broken or unused televisions, computers and technology devices.

The bi-annual event is co-organized by the Mohave Community College Computer Club, MC4, and the City of Kingman Public Works Department.

This past November, the club and city collected 3,060 pounds of computers, printers, and televisions to be recycled. The club members removed dozens of hard drives from computers before recycling them and will do so again as a service to anyone who wants to safely recycle their old systems but protect their private data.

“It was a great day!” says Andrew Schuler, Secretary of the club, “We are happy to help with this event – it’s great for the environment, too.” The club wishes to thank Kingman City Public Works Sanitation Superintendent, Ed Tapia, and his staff, Glenn and Chico, for facilitating these events for the club.

Items that will be accepted include: televisions, monitors, computer components, records, MP3 and video players, DVD/VHS players, digital cameras, radios, telephones and printers. Car batteries or other items containing Freon will not be accepted.
