The event was a rare opportunity for people in the area to get rid of some of their old electronic devices, including those that contain Freon and can be hazardous to the environment. The Intermunicipal Relations Committee holds similar events throughout the year to both collect the items and warn people about the dangers of simply throwing electronics away.
WTAJ will host their annual Recycling events again this year. We will not be collecting e-waste during these events. The first is scheduled for April 16th at Wolf's Furniture in Altoona.
