Each year in Lawrence, the city coordinates with a local recycler for an electronics recycling event. It’s usually in October and May. The city hasn’t announced an event for 2019. Lots of clients are asking about it, assuming it would have been by now.

We do recycling year-round but don’t actively advertise it. We think it’s essential to participate in the city event to show there is a clear need in our community. To help out, we’re going to create our own mini-computer and electronics recycling event on Tuesday, June 18th from 4 pm to 8 pm.
For this mini event, we can recycle at no charge:
- Desktop and laptop computers along with FREE secure destruction of data
- Things that connect to computers like scanners, monitors, and printers
- Floppy disks, CDs and manuals
- Mobile phones and tablets
- Stuff we can’t take is anything non-computer related like appliances or televisions
We’re limiting this to residential customers and can only take three computers per household. If you need to recycle more, let us know, and we can coordinate with our recycling partner, Connecting For Good. Connecting For Good is a fantastic organization we work with to make sure computers can be repurposed locally whenever possible to help bridge the digital divide.
If you come by that day, we’ll give you some free DoctorDave gifts for recycling your computer. Don’t have anything to recycle? No worries, stop by and we’ll still give you a little something. Need a quick computer question answered? We can do that during our recycling event. We’ll even have a few treats.
If you could RSVP via Facebook if you’re interested, that will help make sure we have enough room, gifts, and treats.
