The North Central RC&D has initiated a recycling pilot project, with an electronics recycling collection event scheduled from 9 a.m. until noon. April 29 at the O’Neill High School parking lot.
E-Stroyed of Grand Island will collect electronics for recycling. The items collected during the event will be taken to the E-Stroyed facility, in Grand Island, sorted and dismantled for recycling. E-Stroyed will wipe any devices that have data on the hard drive.For more information on the recycling event April 29, contact Lynn Sobotka at 402-340-2774.
RC&D Board members agreed to help coordinate additional recycling events in the six-county area, which includes Brown, Rock, Keya Paha, Cherry, Holt and Boyd counties.
Coordinator Kim Burge said she has been working on a directory for area recycling which will be made available to residents in the district when completed. The directory will help citizens find out how and where they can dispose of recyclable materials.
The RC&D board members discussed additional potential recycling opportunities in the six county area in the coming months.
The next meeting of the North Central RC&D is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. March 8 in the Bassett City offices. Anyone interested is invited to attend.
