A public recycling event will be conducted on by the Regional Recycling District in Pulaski County and Recycle Saline, the solid waste management district in Saline County. The two-county joint drop-off and collection event will be limited to old TVs with tubes, other TVs, flat screens and any type of monitor, including computer monitors.
“The toxic chemicals in old televisions, particularly the ones with tubes, are the main reason they need to be diverted from landfills and recycled,” said Tiffany Dunn, executive director of Recycle Saline. “This special drop-off event in Little Rock and here in Benton, will help focus residents of Pulaski and Saline Counties on the need to recycle old TVs.”
The public recycling event will be held on Saturday, Feb. 23, from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m., at eSCO Recycling, located at:
- 1807 E. 23rd St. off Roosevelt Rd. in Little Rock, and
- the Saline County Fairgrounds, 406 Fairfield Road at Exit 116 off of I-30 West in Benton.
Residents of Pulaski and Saline Counties may drive up to the recycling personnel on hand and the TVs in their cars and trucks will be unloaded for them. The event is free. No businesses, schools, or other institutions will be included. The drop-off event is for residential recycling only.
