HAMPSTEAD —The Hampstead Lions Club will hold an Electronics and Small/Large Appliance Recycling Fundraiser on Sat., October 18, from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., at Stage Road Junction, corner of Routes 111 and 121 in Hampstead.

You can recycle just about anything! Now that Fall is here, get rid of those old computers, printers, copiers, TVs, VCRs, stereos, washers, dryers, air conditioners, refrigerators and freezers that are taking up valuable space in your home. For a small fee, any appliance or electronic item that is difficult to discard or cannot be put at the curb for pick-up can be recycled at this charity fundraiser.
This is also great for the environment! Fees are: computers: full systems - $25.00, monitors or computer- $10.00 each, printer - $5.00, telephones - $1.00, small appliances (microwaves, fax machines, etc.) - $5.00; washers, dryers, stoves and air conditioners - $15.00; and refrigerators, water heaters, freezers - $20.00; TVs/small - $15.00, TVs/large - $20.00. Certain bulk scrap metal items, such as barbeque grills and empty propane tanks with valves removed, may be accepted, as well.
