CLAY COUNTY — Clay County Solid Waste is encouraging residents to use its electronic recycling program.
Clay County has two locations open to residents year-round. Electronics recycling is available at the Clay County Landfill, 3301 190th St. S. in Hawley, Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and the first and third Saturdays of the month 8 a.m. to noon. Clay County also offers electronics recycling at the Electronics Shed, 1300 1th Ave. N. in Moorhead, on Tuesday evenings 4-6 p.m. only.
Recycling old electronic devices saves energy. It also ensures fewer raw materials and natural resources are needed to create new devices. Recycling old devices helps to prevent electronic waste from entering the local landfill. Over the last 11 years, Clay County has diverted and recycled 1600 tons of electronic waste.
Common acceptable items include: TVs, computers, anything you plug into a computer, cell phones, rechargeable batteries, fluorescent bulbs, LED bulbs, holiday lights, fax machines, DVD/VHS players, videocassette recorders. Anything outside of this list is not accepted.
