The ninth annual free residential electronic waste and tire recycling event will be 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 26, in the parking lot at the Navajo County Penrod facility, 251 N. Penrod Road in Show Low.

Citizens from across southern Navajo County are invited to drop off unwanted televisions and computer monitors (limit two per vehicle), computer equipment, batteries, chargers, cell phones, VCRs; CD and DVD players, printers, small appliances, fax machines, stereos, cables and cords, as well as used tires (no rims please) for free.

The City of Show Low is partnering with Navajo County, the town of Pinetop-Lakeside and Green IT Solutions of Phoenix to present this annual recycling event. This is a great opportunity to responsibly dispose of electronic items and not consume valuable space in the landfills.

Over the past eight years, the regional event in Show Low has proven to be popular, with a cumulative total of about 557,000 pounds of electronic waste collected from more than 2,700 vehicles.
