Enterprise residents are invited to dispose of their old and outdated electronics equipment and documents Saturday, Aug. 5, during a free recycling event offered by the Alabama Cooperative Extension System, Wiregrass Rehabilitation Center, Discovery Recycle, The Ark of Dothan and the City of Enterprise.
The location where residents may drop off their electronic items has been changed to the Lowe’s parking lot. Discovery Recycle will have trucks stationed there for loading from 8 a.m. to noon. Though disposal is free on most items, a $1- per-inch fee will be charged for glass-screen TVs and computer monitors.
The Wiregrass Rehab Center’s shredding truck/equipment will also be set up at the site from 8 a.m. to noon to accept paper documents residents would like to have safely discarded.
The drop-off event is open to the public, including businesses. The purpose of the event is to prevent electronics from being disposed of in landfills or other areas where they can harm the environment, and to dispose of sensitive personal paper materials to help prevent identify theft.
For those unable to attend the event in Enterprise, The Ark, Dothan, located on West Main Street, is now accepting electronic items Monday through Saturday.
For more information, contact Phillip Carter, extension agent, at (334) 714-3458, or Jeff Peacock, The Ark, Dothan, at (334) 794-7223.
