OVERLAND PARK, Kan. - Like most homes, you probably have an old cell phone, a laptop or a television collecting dust in a closet or basement.
You can get rid of old electronics on Saturday while protecting the environment and your personal information.
Commerce Bank will host an e-recycling day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 25 at the 135th and Lamar location in Overland Park, Kan.
You will not be charged for small items like phones and laptops. A $5 fee will be charged for things like scanners and VCRs, while a $30 fee will be charged for bigger items such as projection TVs.
"They're going to have the ability to have the hard drive destroyed right here on site, or Surplus Exchange will take it back to their facility and wipe it clean up to Department of Defense standards,” Commerce Bank President Kevin Barth said.
A $5 donation will go to help the Blue Valley Education Foundation. For more information, visit http://tinyurl.com/8fn824d .
