Last Saturday’s annual electronic recycling event saw a record 150 carloads dropped off, as the usual $15 fee was waived by XTO Energy. Krista Timlin said they still have an extra 10 pallets to take to Anchorage for processing…
Timlin: “A lot of CPU’s, computer towers, cell phones and computer-related electronics were certainly very popular. There were also, people brought in, small appliances, radio/stereo things, VCR players, DVD players…”
The items are first taken to Anchorage for processing, then on to Seattle to be broken down further , if needed. Timlin said the precious metals and elements in the electronics are recycled by the Basil Action Network, to the highest levels of environmental responsibility.
