Keep Charlotte Beautiful ‘No-Touch’ Recycling Event
At 8 a.m. on December 5, Keep Charlotte Beautiful (KCB) is hosting a “no-touch” recycling event in Port Charlotte. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, KCB is asking attendees to place items in the trunk of their vehicles and allow them to be unloaded by those working at the event.
This recycling event is the perfect opportunity for those that have electronic items collecting dust; clothes taking up room in their closets; old prescriptions sitting around; and/or documents that need to be shredded.
The list of acceptable electronics for recycling include: desktop and laptop computers; TVs and monitors (two free per car; $20 donation to KCB to defray cost for each additional TV or monitor); servers and server racks; peripherals (keyboards, mice and speakers); switches, routers and network equipment; hard drives, tape drives and other storage devices; projectors; printers; copiers; scanners; plotters; fax machines; cell phones; rechargeable and uninterruptible power supply (UPS) batteries; power supplies and adapters; consumer electronics; telephones; personal digital assistants (PDAs); tablets; game consoles and controllers; DVD/CD/VCR players; and stereo equipment.
Shred-It will be on-site and will be accepting boxes or bags of paper to shred. Attendees are asked to make sure there is nothing but paper to go into the machine. In addition, the Cultural Center will be attending and will be accepting gently used clothing.
KCB’s mission is to inspire and educate people to take action every day to improve and beautify Charlotte County. Through its ongoing programs, KCB helps individuals, families and civic and business groups get more involved in protecting our precious natural resources.
