LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A local church gives the community a way to get rid of that old TV and computer.
Catholic Charities partnered with electronics recycling company to take away old cell phones, printers, copiers, scanners, and much more.
A $5 fee applied for tvs, monitors and microwaves.
But what happens to those electronics after you drop them off?
"De-manufacturing everything. We have a no landfill, no export policy. So nothing we have taken in from customers, whether it's a community event like this or a corporate account, nothing ends up in a landfill, nothing goes overseas to a burn village," says 2trg Senior Account Manager Steve Mumford.
The electronics go to a processing center where they save anything with value and toxic materials are sent off to be safely disposed of. The rest is shredded and grinded.
The next dropoff event is at Church of the Ascension from 8 until 2 February 4th.
