If you’re still wondering what to do with that defunct snow blower collecting dust in the garage, or what about the behemoth computer in the basement? Then, hey, it’s time to make a move and recycle! The city of St. Charles in sponsorship with WITS, Inc., will once again host a free monthly Electronic Recycling Event available to all area businesses and residents in St. Charles, Warren and Lincoln Counties.

There is no charge for items dropped off however donations are requested to help defray recycling costs. Donors will receive tax letters, and are also guaranteed hard-drive security destruction. WITS will also offer free pick-up services the third week of every month for area businesses with large quantity items, as well as special services for elderly or physically challenged residents requiring assistance (please call 314-558-0090 for more information related to special pick-up services).

WITS or Web Innovations & Technology Services builds communities through reuse, recycling and education. Items – working or not – accepted in the monthly recycling drive include:

  • Any items with a power cord
  • Any items that take batteries or gas, including batteries
  • Lawn equipment
  • All computer-related equipment
  • Household electronics, including phones, radios, televisions and cable boxes
  • All appliances
