If you're looking to recycle an old computer or television, Saturday is the time to do it.

Fargo residents can bring one of each of these items to the city's solid waste facility, 2301 8th Ave. N., between 9 a.m. and noon.

Computer monitors and televisions have cathode ray tubes (CRTs) that contain three pounds of lead on average. Computer drives contain mercury, cadmium and other heavy metals that are harmful to the environment when disposed of improperly.

Fargo businesses also will be able to bring items by appointment today and Thursday at a rate of 25 cents per pound, or 75 percent off the normal disposal rate.

If the items are in working condition, they also could be donated instead of recycled. Call the city's household hazardous waste facility at 281-8915 for assistance.
