    The Sussex County Municipal Utilities Authority has partnered with Electronics Recyclers International (ERI) to provide an E-Waste Collection Event on Saturday, Oct. 19th, from 7 a.m. until 2 p.m.

    This is the final free collection Event for 2019. ERI transports the electronic material to their designated facility for proper demanufacturing and recycling.

    “As computers, televisions and other electronic media are upgraded, more items are being disposed of, or stored improperly. The SCMUA provides Sussex County residents and businesses with a community-based approach to prevent electronic products from entering the waste stream,” said SCMUA Executive Director Tom Varro.
