Electronic Recycling Event

Free Fillmore County Electronics Collection & Recycling Event

On Thursday, June 2nd from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. individuals, businesses, schools, government entities, and non-profits in Fillmore County may bring old and broken electronics to the East bullpen at 10th & F Street, Geneva, Nebraska for recycling. Only bring recyclables on the day and time listed.

Computers and all other computer related equipment, copy machines, cash registers, printers, VCR’s, digital telephones and other electronic equipment will be accepted. Televisions cannot be brought, however. Sponsors reserve the right to refuse unrelated items. This event is limited to Fillmore County residents. A grant from Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality is allowing this event to be free of charge.

Recycling provides a positive outlet and ensures that computer metals and other hazardous material contained in electronic equipment will not end up in a land fill or worse. This event is sponsored by and in cooperation with Trailblazer Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D), Fillmore County Development Corporation and Fillmore County. The event is funded by a grant provided by the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality. If you have any questions contact the Fillmore County Development Corporation at (402) 759-4910.
