Battle Creek Promotes Recycling This Summer, Corrects Mistake
The problem is, a date was wrong in one of them.
The City says that the water bill insert incorrectly said that the late summer electronics and Styrofoam collection event would take place on August 26, when it is actually scheduled for August 25. The collection will be taking place for 9am to 1pm, at the Department of Public Works building on Kendall St.
However, Battle Creek is also taking this opportunity to promote this and other environmental and recycling events.
The August 25 recycling event will allow for the following items to be recycled, according to a press release:
Computers and computer equipment, including laptops
LCD and CRT monitors
Wires and cords
Copy and fax machines
Audio visual equipment
LCD, plasma, and tube TVs
Small kitchen appliances and electronics
Other items with a cord
Styrofoam #6 – polystyrene, typically is used to make foam cups, plates, egg cartons, and packing material. Foam packing peanuts and construction foam cannot be accepted.
The City notes that this event is only for the recycling of residential waste, and if you bring large quantities you might face a fee.
