Get out those old printers and computers and VHS players because you officially have a place to take them to get recycled legally.
The Clinton City Council Monday night announced a pair of free recycling days coming to Clinton June 9 and 10. City Administrator Tim Followell doesn't need to remind the public this is a huge need. You can even dispose of your televisions of any size for just ten-dollars.
Clinton, like numerous other communities across the state, have been in search of a viable option for electronic recycling, especially once HRC East ceased to offer it. Followell says the company from northern Illinois approached the City about having this come to Clinton.
There will be no residency requirements for participation in the electronic recycling days.
Again the dates are June 9 and 10 at the Clinton High School parking lot.
