The event is sponsored by the Frank Van Dresser team with RE/MAX Quality Realty and the Brian Smith group with Union Home Mortgage
The people of Norwalk and surrounding areas are invited to drop off paper items, computers, gently-used clothing and much more — all of which will be recycled.
“We wanted to do something beneficial for our community as well as help the environment,” Van Dresser said. “It all started from our own spring cleaning. We will also have CLI’s shred truck there for sensitive document destruction.”
Examples of items that will be accepted include: desktops, laptops, printers, copiers, fax machines, scanners, home and cell phones, cameras, modems, power cords, plugs, wires and cables.
Accepted in good working condition include: stereo equipment, peripherals, radios, servers, game consoles, VCR and DVD players. TVs are not accepted.
Gently-used clothing also will be collected and all items can be dropped off for free. Goodwill Industries is partnering for the event.
Also on board for the event is Christie Lane Industries (CLI). The public is invited to bring regular recyclables to the event such as cardboard boxes, junk mail, file folders, paper, phone books, books, magazines, newspapers, aluminum cans, plastic bottles, CDs and DVDs, plastic grocery bags and household plastics. All regular recyclables can be put together in a bag or box and don’t have to be separated.
The following will not be accepted: TV’s, paints or hazardous materials; medication; child seats; helmets of any kind; large appliances (but small dorm size appliances in good working condition will be accepted).
