Saturday, September 17th is Newton's City-Wide Electronic Recycling Day. It is a great opportunity to get rid of old appliances and electronics that are no longer of use. You can drop off items at the corner of W 4th St N and N 2nd Ave W between 8 am and 12 pm.
Hometown Rewards is offering complimentary pick-up for those unable to make it to the drop-off point. Applications may be completed online for this service at http://bit.ly/NewtonRecycling, or applicants may contact Jackie Boat at firstname.lastname@example.org or 641-521-0815 to schedule a time. There is limited capacity and application does not guarantee a pick-up. Pick-up items will be prioritized according to accessibility.
Some items are subject to recycling fees. Fees must be collected upon pick-up/drop off. The fee to recycle TVs and computer monitors is $15. The fee for larger TVs (big screens/projection/console) is $30. Cash or check payment may be made to: H & W Recycling Inc., 204 Townsend Park Road, Baxter, IA 50028.
