You’ll be able to recycle old computers, televisions and other electronic products here in Anacortes, thanks to a new program by a Kiwanis Club group.

The Anacortes Aktion Club will begin accepting electronics products for recycling on Saturday. The new service project is part of the new E-Cycle Washington program which requires electronics manufacturers to bear the cost of recycling their products.

Eric Johnson, who is chairing the Aktion Club Committee that will operate the drop-off site, says the site will be open every second and fourth Saturday of the month from 10am to 2 pm. The site will be at 418 30th St, just east of the Tommy Thompson Trail.

Johnson says the products will be recycled according to state standards to ensure that no materials either hazardous to human health or the environment will be allowed to enter landfills.

There will be no charge for recycling computers, monitors, and televisions. Other items, such as printers, speakers, scanners and MP3 players can also be dropped off, but there will be a small fee charged, since they don’t fall under the state program.

The Aktion Club is the Kiwanis Club for adults living with disabilities.
