The Clinton County Foundation will host an electronics recycling event 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 18 in the parking lot of Job and Family Services at 1025 S. South St. in Wilmington.

Those interested in recycling their “retired” electronic devices must register for an appointment time to drop off these used items. Registration is limited, so community members are encouraged to set an appointment as soon as possible.

Clinton County residents can register at or on the Foundation’s Facebook page which have the registration link.

“Registration is required to recycle. The recycling company will not accept items with Freon. The full list of what is acceptable and not acceptable is located on the Foundation’s website,” said Jan Blohm, Foundation Executive Director. “Go to the website to ensure you are recycling an acceptable item. This will helps the recycling company, TDR, to bring enough trailers.”

The Foundation and the Clinton County Solid Waste District have joined forces to make this a free event.
