A landfill ban on electronics is in effect in North Carolina making it illegal to dispose of televisions and electronics, such as computers, printers, and video games, in the landfill.

These items must be recycled for proper disposal.

On Saturday, Oct. 31, 7:30 a.m.-noon, electronics will be collected for free recycling at the landfill at 360 Dalton Road in Mocksville.

Items that will be collected include PCs, hard drives, laptops, televisions, keyboards and mice, servers, cell phones, PDAs, video games, iPod and MP3 players, network equipment, consumer electronics, scanners, printers, copiers, GPS, typewriters, telephone systems, rechargeable batteries, and ink and toner cartridges.

There are other recycling options for many of these items, and working electronics can still be donated to places such as Goodwill.  The county will offer its last electronic collection event in 2015 on Oct. 31 at the solid waste center.
