The tradition of “Cleanest and Greenest” fairground in the West continues. Once again, the Plumas Sierra County Fairgrounds go “green” by sponsoring an e-waste recycling event on May 3 & 4 at the fairgrounds. Most electronic waste can be brought to the collection center located just outside the front gate from 9am to 3pm.
Acceptable items include televisions, monitors, LCD screens, plasma screens, laptops, computer towers, printers, copiers, fax machines, calculators, stereos, speakers, cell phones, keyboards and telephones. Items that cannot be accepted are batteries, household appliances, paint or VHS tapes. They can accept microwave ovens, but no other appliance. There is no charge to dispose of these items and the Fair is paid a fee for holding the event based on the amount of items collected.
If you are interested in volunteering to help, or have questions, please call the Fair Office at 283-6272.
