Do you have old electronics lying around the house that you want to dispose of responsibly and ensure get recycled?
The Baldwinsville Girls Crew Booster Club will host a "Recycling for Rowers" electronics collections event Saturday Oct. 23 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at JD's Fish N' Grill at the corner of routes 31 and 57 in Moyers Corners.
The collection event will accept a full range of electronics including computers, laptops, keyboards, monitors, printers, scanners, copiers, fax machines, typewriters, cell phones, VCRs, stereos, CD and DVD players, telephones, microwave ovens and other small appliances. Not accepted will be televisions, dehumidifiers, refrigerators, air conditioners and other appliances with Freon.
A donation of $10 per item or $25 per car load is suggested. All proceeds will be used to support the Baldwinsville High School Girls Crew team, including the future purchase of a new racing shell. All electronics will be properly disposed of or recycled by Bruin Electronics of Liverpool.
Baldwinsville rowers were 2010 champions of several Section III categories, finalists at the New York State Championships and qualifiers for the National Scholastic Rowing Championships.
