Solution for Disposing of Old Electronics

If you are looking for a place to get rid of used or unwanted electronics, the Good News Project in Wausau is able to help.

After the holiday season many people get brand new electronic items and are left with old TVs or computers that they no longer need. Each Friday the Good News Project holds an electronics recycling event from 9am-5pm where people can dispose of items. The Good News Project ensures that the items will not end up in landfills.

Organizers say that they are getting into the busiest time of year for drop-offs.

"Primarily in the middle of January it gets to be busier than in the week after Christmas. People are testing new equipment to make sure it works, they are wanting to clear off hard drives to make sure the information gets transferred over or to make sure the TV is working properly before they move the old one out. " says Toni Schmitt of Good News Project.

Drop offs take place every week at 1106 5th Street in Wausau. An additional Saturday collection will be held on January 18th.
