Recycle That Old TV for Free01/07/2021Now through March 31st, 2021, the Allen County Department of Environmental Management (ACDEM) is waiving television recycling fees for Allen County residents. This program is open to Allen County residents only. Households can recycle up to two televisions at no cost, with fees applying to additional TVs. Electronics can be taken to ACDEM’s partner OmniSource, located at 1430 Meyer Road. Hours are Monday – Friday, 8:00AM – 5:00PM, and Saturday 8:00AM – noon. All types and sizes of televisions are accepted, in working order or not. Fees are still in place for other electronic items with a limit of 15 items per month. Since 2010, televisions and other electronic waste, which contain toxic elements like lead and mercury, have been banned from Indiana landfills. This means TVs and other electronics that are put out with normal trash will not be accepted! By recycling them instead, you can help protect your community and your environment. After March 31st, residential TV recycling will return to its regular price of $10 for screens up to 46 inches, and $20 for screens 47” and above. Residents are encouraged to visit acwastewatcher.org or call 260-449-7878 for more information. Last year, our community faced many challenges – for so many that included financial hardship. ACDEM hopes that this is one less obstacle that Allen County residents have to overcome.
