LOVES PARK - Hundreds of old computers and household appliances are properly disposed of.
Keep Northern Illinois Beautiful says its Semi-Annual Metals & Electronics Drive held last Saturday was a success.
"Our volunteers counted 737 vehicles dropping off such items as laptops, dehumidifiers, irons, printers, hair dryers, water heaters, holiday lights, and other household and office cast-offs" says Lori Gummow, KNIB's Executive Director.
The group holds two of these drives yearly to keep items out of landfills.
If you have any scrap lying around, KNIB will hold its Spring Metals and Electronics Drive May 3, 2014 at the parking lot of the Machesney Park Mall.
