If you have any old or unwanted electronics that you’d like to dispose of in environmentally friendly way, free of charge, then you should come to an event in Godfrey today and tomorrow. From 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. both days, representatives from the Office of Sustainability at Lewis and Clark Community College, CJD E-Cycling and the Riverbend Growth Association will be at the parking lot on Tolle Lane in Godfrey to take most of those unwanted electronics off your hand.
They will take nearly anything that uses a cord or a battery, except for televisions or computer monitors without the hard-drive tower according to Nate Keener, the Director of Sustainability at Lewis and Clark Community College. So what can you do with them?

Keener tells The Big Z that since they began having these drives in 2012, they have prevented more than 70 tons of hazardous electronic waste from entering landfills.
