BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- On Tuesday, Binghamton Mayor Jared Kraham announced details for an electronic drop-off event offered for Binghamton residents at the Department of Public Works in Binghamton.

The free event will be held June 25 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 17 Broad St. in Binghamton.

This gives residents an opportunity to properly get rid of unwanted electronics by recycling them at the Department of Public Works garage. Many electronic items can not be disposed of at normal curbside collections in New York.

Televisions, monitors, computers and laptops, printers, fax machines, cell phones, radios, VCRs, GPS units and gaming consoles will be accepted.

Items that may be disposed of curbside and will not be accepted to recycle include landline telephones, vacuums, coffee makers, toasters and microwaves.

Residents looking to dispose of refrigerators freezers and air conditioners can call DPW at (607) 772-7020 to schedule a curbside pickup.

Saturday’s drop-off event is organized by the Broome County Division of Solid Waste Management.

If you can’t make it to this event, the Broome County Landfill offers free designated collection days each month. Non-collection days require a $5 fee.

This drop-off event is for Binghamton residents only and proof of residency will be required.
