Clinton residents need to be aware of some changes regarding disposal of electronics at the Clinton Landfill.

Changes will soon be enforced prohibiting certain electronic items from the Clinton Landfill's facility. While larger items obviously are not allowed, the ban will now prohibit some smaller electronic items from being disposed of at the site. Clinton Mayor Carolyn Peters explains there is a long list of what is not allowed in the garbage any longer.

While that may seem like a problem, a recent program at DeWitt County's Human Resource Center should make things much easier on residents. HRC East on Route 10 has been accepting electronic items to be recycled, according to Mayor Peters.

The ban does not go into effect until January 1, of 2012, but Mayor Peters encourages residents to begin taking advantage of the recycling program at HRC East.

For the list of items on the ban you contact City Hall at 935-9438, or for more information on the recycling program at HRC, you can call 935-2218.
