WILMINGTON, MA — The Town of Wilmington has launched a new residential electronics recycling program.
“This is a new volunteer program the Town has put in place in attempt to reduce the solid waste brought to the incinerator in North Andover,” explains Wilmington DPW Director Mike Woods.
Residents can now drop off unwanted electronics at the town’s DPW Administration Building (115 Andover Street), from Monday to Friday, 8am to 4pm.
Accepted electronics include:
- Computer Towers/Bases
- Cell Phones & Assessories
- Desk Top Printers (Laser/Inkjet)
- Fax Machines
- Keyboard & Mouse
- Modems, Routers & Switches
- Circuit Boards
- External/Internal Disk Drives
- All Cabling
- All Mac/Apple Equipment
- Radios/Home Stereo Equipemnt
- VCR, DVD and Other Media Players
- MP3 Players
- Battery Backup Units
This is a FREE service for residents, who will need to show proof of residency.
Please note that computer monitors and televisions are not accepted at the DPW Administration Building. To schedule a monitor or TV pickup, residents must buy a sticker ($10 each) at the Treasurer/Collector’s Office at Town Hall. They’ll then be placed on a list for curbside collection.
“Any resident who wants to empty their closets of old or broken electronics will be able to drop it off, knowing it will be recycled,” stressed Woods. “This is a no fee service we hope all will utilize and has the added benefit of not taking up space in one’s trash container.”
