E-waste collection held despite rain


The 2012 event brought in a total of 36,646 pounds of electronics waste. Most of this, 15,598 pounds, was from old TVs. The items filled up one-and-a-half semi-trailers.

It will be a few weeks yet before organizers know the total weight of Saturday’s collection. However, waste from the event did fill up one semi-trailer, Hollmann said.

Vintage Tech, headquartered in Romeoville, handled the disposal for Saturday’s event.
