The University of Toledo will help you get rid of those old electronics piled up in the basement or spare bedroom.

Most anything with a power cord will be accepted to be disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner.

For those looking to recycle older televisions, there will be a disposal charge. Any older television less than 24 inches will cost $10, and sets 24 inches and larger will cost $20 to recycle.

The University is working with Affinity Information Management to recycle the items from the drive.

The e-waste event is part of UT’s Sustainability, Energy Efficiency and Design Program and part of the University’s RecycleMania efforts.

RecycleMania is a national eight-week competition that began Feb. 2 in which universities across the United States and Canada compete for the most recycled materials collected by weight.
