For a third year, Stevens County residents will be able to rid their homes of electronic waste such as computer monitors, TVs and other gadgets free of charge, thanks to the the Morris Area School District Student Energy Leadership Team and Stevens County.

The district's Service Learning program has organized a third electronics waste recycling program. Stevens County residents can dispose of old electronics devices free at the Morris Area Elementary School from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., on Wednesday, May 19.

The free recycling includes computers, televisions and anything that can be plugged into a computer or TV. Traffic will be directed to the north parking lot of the school, located at 153 Columbia Ave., in Morris.

See a complete list of items at the bottom of this story. Lists also are available at the Morris Community Education Office, the Morris Area High School Office, and at Morris City Hall.

For more information or to volunteer to help, contact Cheryl Kuhn, coordinator of the Service Learning Program, at (320) 585-2231, or by email at this address:
