Jackson County residents seeking to responsibly dispose of electronics, paint, fluorescent light bulbs, motor oil and other materials can do that Saturday morning as Keep Jackson County Beautiful holds its annual “Fall into Recycling” event.
Volunteers will be at the Jackson County Transfer station from 8 a.m. to noon to unload and recycle computers, monitors, printers, copiers, CD players, stereos, microwave ovens, scanners, external drives and other electronics.
There is a $10 charge per television set.
Keep Jackson County Beautiful will also accept fluorescent light bulbs — up to six for free and the rest for $1 apiece. It will accept up to six gallons of oil and/or latex paint per household (there is a $2/gallon fee for amounts over six gallons), auto batteries, aluminum and small metals, ink cartridges, newsprint and other paper.
In addition, American Security Shredding will offer free document shredding for households.
Also, volunteers will accept good used clothing, eyeglasses, cell phones, canned food, books, tools and CDs on behalf of local charities.
The normal transfer station prices will be charged for disposal of other household wastes, including tires ($2 for auto tires, $5 for truck tires).
