According to the City of Jackson, participants from all over Cape Girardeau County delivered e-waste, appliances and other non-degradable items that totaled more than 16,869 pounds collected. This included more than 24 pallets of televisions and many other miscellaneous electronics such as video games, radios, power cords, appliances, computers and audio/visual equipment. All of this material was diverted from landfills and will be recycled. Midwest Recycling Center, a Missouri Department of Natural Resources and R2 nationally-certified vendor, from Park Hills, conducted the e-cycling activities. The City said all hard drivers from computers were shredded or erased using U.S. Department of Defense-approved software. Customers can continue to e-cycle through the regular drop off program conducted at the Jackson Recycling Center, which is open daily. Fees are applicable.
