Johnson County and Kiewit partner for recycling event
In celebration of America Recycles Day, the Johnson County Department of Health and Environment (JCDHE), Kiewit, ProShred, and Secure e-Cycle will be hosting an electronics recycling and paper shredding event on April 28th from 9 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Any resident can drop off “anything with a cord” to be properly recycled, as well as paper that will be securely shredded. All electronic items are free except TVs ($40 each) and CRT monitors ($25 each), cash and check only. There is no charge for paper shredding, donations are accepted. More info can be found at www.jocogov.org/ewaste.
The event will be held at Kiewit headquarters at 8900 Renner Blvd in Lenexa. Collection will occur in the North parking lot off 89th St. As a courtesy, Johnson County staff and volunteers will be there to unload your vehicle.
“Johnson County is pleased to partner with so many great companies to provide recycling options for peoples electronics and paper, keeping them out of the landfill,” said Brandon Hearn, education and outreach coordinator for JCDHE. “One of the world’s fastest growing trash problems is electronic waste. It’s important to recycle it responsibly because so much of it contains hazardous materials.”
