Waukesha County is partnering up with Goodwill to expand their e-cycle program. They will be running five of them in 2019, with the first taking place on Saturday.
The partnership means that several more items will be accepted. They now include home goods and pre-shredded paper. Paper that needs to be shredded can also be brought for a $5 fee.
Items that will continue to be accepted free of charge include computers, laptops, scanners, DVD players, VCRs, stereos, cell phones, telephones, and appliances such as air conditioners, refrigerators, microwaves, freezers, washer/dryers, stoves and dishwashers.
It will still cost $25 to drop off a television, and $10 for each cathode ray tube computer monitor.
In a statement, Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow says the partnership will not only benefit county residents with what they can take, but it will also help Goodwill with its missions such as training people for employment.
The first event is March 9 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Goodwill location in Oconomowoc. Other e-cycle events include:
– May 11 from 9 a.m. to noon at the New Berlin City Street Department, 16550 West National Avenue
– July 13 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Brookfield Recycling Center, 19700 Riverview Drive
– September 14 from 9 a.m. to noon at 630 East Veterans Way in Mukwonago
