From the listings desk: We see a lot of events here, and many recycling events for old electronics, expired medications and chemicals. But this one, coming up on Earth Day weekend, takes the cake.
The Honeywell Earth Day Recycling Event happening Friday, April 19 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. will host four entities that will take everything from scrap wood to old mattresses to dead cell phones. All that stuff that's hard to get rid of. And then some:
Discover Goodwill will take second-hand clothing, household items, sporting goods, small furniture and any working electronics and computers.
Western Scrap Processing will collect all small and major appliances, mattresses, batteries, cell phones and "anything with a power cord!"
El Paso County Environmental Services Department will take paint (both liquid and aerosol), prescription medication, medical sharps and household hazardous waste.
Some fees will apply for certain items, but most of the items will be taken for free.
