City opens drop-off site for used electronics


Unwanted electronics and small appliances now may be disposed of safely and conveniently.

Worthington has partnered with Accurate IT Solution to host a permanent electronics-waste drop-off center for city residents.

The drop-off will accept any sort of electronics or small kitchen appliances that run on rechargeable batteries or have a cord. Computers, laptops, cellphones, clock radios, toaster ovens, rechargeable hand tools and flat-screen televisions are examples of items that may be dropped off.

Items that may not be left at the site include old-style tube-type televisions and CRT monitors, light bulbs and such Freon-containing appliances as dehumidifiers and window air conditioners.

The drop-off is at the Worthington Service & Engineering Department, 380 Highland Ave., and is open from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.

Residents may stop at the front office, sign in and leave a driver's license, and the receptionist will provide a gate opener and directions to the drop-off container.

In addition, e-waste drop-off will be held from noon to 3 p.m. the last Saturday of every month.
