Free Electronic-Waste Collection Event at Logan Landfill
Logan, MT — Gallatin Solid Waste Management District and 406 Recycling are gearing up to host the annual free electronic waste collection event on Saturday, Sept. 26 at Logan Landfill from 8 AM to 2 PM. Collected items will be processed by 406 Recycling which ensures that high environmental standards are met through the entire life of the recycling process. All data and personal information will be kept secure until it is destroyed. This is a great opportunity to clear out some of those items that don’t work and are collecting dust.
Electronic items that will be accepted include: computers, monitors, printers, TVs (including CRT, LCD and rear-projection), radios, digital cameras, mobile phones, routers, scanners, fax machines, DVD players, stereos and equipment, remote controls, keyboards, microwave (clean inside and no tray), servers, tablets, VCRs, digital clock radios and accessories and cord. If you’re not sure if something is considered e-waste, call 406-582-2493 for clarification.
Customers will need to stop at the gate before the scale house for instructions. If you have other items to dispose, normal trash rates still apply.
Logan Landfill accepts e-waste during regular business hours (7:30 AM – 4:30 PM, Monday through Saturday – Winter Hours) for a fee of $27 per ton, with a $5 minimum for up to 400 pounds.
For more information about the free e-waste collection event, please call Patty at 406-582-2493, or email Patricia.Howard@gallatin.mt.gov. You can also visit our website GallatinSolidWaste.org.
