Lewiston sets electronic waste recycling for Saturday

LEWISTON – Town and Village of Lewiston residents will have another chance to recycle their old electronic devices from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday in the town Highway Department garage, 1445 Swann Road.

The event is free, and the town will accept televisions, small electrical appliances, cellphones, hand-held power tools, lamps, and computers.

The town’s first electronics drop-off day in January brought in more than 20,000 pounds of recyclable electronics.

Town Highway Superintendent Douglas A. Janese said, “By providing this much-needed request and service for our residents, we are able to prevent the material from entering the waste stream or being illegally disposed of. If we continue to see a strong demand for the service I will be holding these drop-offs on a quarterly basis.”

Assemblyman John D. Ceretto, a former Lewiston councilman, praised the plan. He said, “We are fortunate to have Town of Lewiston Highway Superintendent Doug Janese and the generous staff at the highway department devote their time to make sure our community reduces the spread of electronic waste, by recycling these electronic goods in a safe manner.”
