A new recycling program for electronics is now available in the Sheridan area, according to the Powder River Basin Resource Council.
PRBRC spokesman Kevin Lind says the purpose of the new program is two-fold.
Lind says that in the past seven or eight years, the PRBRC has been able to give over $3,000 to the Youth & Conservation program.
In Sheridan, you can take your old or unused items to Cartridge World, Radio Shack and The Office Copy Shop, where they have drop boxes available. You can include used cell phones, empty laser, fax, copier and ink jet cartridges. Also on the list to turn in are laptops, Palm Pilots, iPod's, video games, GPS systems, DVD's and digital cameras.
Lind says the items will be sent to “Cartridges for Kids” where they are refurbished and reused if possible, or recycled in an environmentally safe manner if they are “done.”
