Nacogdoches, TX — Electronic recycling in Nacogdoches is “booming,” according to Keep Nacogdoches Beautiful Executive Coordinator Buzz Dutton.
The program started in December and was automatically a big hit with local residents.
“We expected this 12-by-16-foot shed to probably be emptied once a month,” Dutton said, “and, at this point, it’s (emptied) about every two weeks because we’re getting such volume.”
On a recent Saturday, nearly two-thirds of the building was filed “in just that one day,” he said.
The e-cycle building is located behind the city’s recreation center alongside the recycling roll-off bins for paper and cardboard as well as No. 1 and No. 2 plastics, which is part of the city’s recycling program.
With the exception of what Dutton described as “major appliances,” just about anything electronic is accepted in the electronic recycling program in which KNB has partnered with STS Recycling out of Jacksonville, including most TVs.
