After a year off due to COVID-19, the City of Greenville is sponsoring its Electronics Recycling Event this weekend.
Items will be accepted from residents in the local area on Friday and Saturday.
Bill Grider, superintendent of the Greenville Public Works Department, said just about anything that has a power cord will be accepted. Refrigerators or large appliances with freon will not be accepted. Old tube-style TVs will be accepted for a $10 fee. Collection hours are 8 AM to 5 PM this Friday and 8 AM to 3 PM Saturday. Drop offs are contact-free. You can stay in your vehicle and pop your trunk, or crews will unload your pickup.

The city has sponsored the event several years and Grider said it has always been successful. The city has collected an average of 40,000 pounds of electronics over each of the last three years.
