University City is holding a free community electronics recycling collection this Saturday at Heman Park Community Center (975 Pennsylvania).
The event is FREE and open to everyone in St. Louis, so it's the perfect opportunity to toss any old electronics in an environmentally friendly way.
“It is possible to recycle old computers, printers and smart phones, rather than throw them into dumpsters. That’s why we’re holding this event – to make it easy and affordable for everyone to do the right thing,” said City Manager Lehman Walker in a news release.
