Free electronic recycling event in Monett

Wednesday, June 26, 2019

The Southwest Missouri Solid Waste Region N is partnering with City of Monett and Computer Recycling Center, LLC to provide households in Barry, Dade, Lawrence, Stone and Taney Counties with a Free Electronic Recycling and Paper Shredding Event on Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon.

The event is being held in the parking lot of the Monett Soccer Complex on Waldensian/Farm Road 1080 in Monett MO.

Funding for this project is from a grant thru the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. This event is free and open to all residents until the trucks are full or grant funds have been exhausted. This event helps to insure that electronic waste is recycled and not improperly disposed of. Region N serves the counties of Barry, Dade, Lawrence, Stone and Taney.

This is a great opportunity to responsibly recycle the following items: computers, laptops, cell phones, TVs, keyboards, DVD players, microwaves, washers, dryers, refrigerators, and monitors (anything with a battery or a cord). Due to restrictions in the grant, this event is only open to households. Items will not be accepted from businesses, churches, schools, hotels, resorts, city/county offices or any other organizations. Businesses can contact Computer Recycling Center at 417-866-2588.

Computer Recycling and Region N reserve the right to refuse any items as necessary. Refrigerators, microwaves, or other items containing food waste or other waste will not be accepted. All items should be clean. Please no more than 2 TVs of the same make or model from the same resident.

No items can be left before 9 a.m. Anyone arriving early should stay in their vehicles and form a line. Nothing can be unloaded until 9 a.m. In order to maintain good traffic flow and for pedestrian/worker safety, there will be one way in and one way out. Please look for entrance and exit signs.

For questions, please contact the Region N Office at 417-236-9012.
