Highland County Changes Date On Electronics/Tire Recycling Day

Presented By Classic Brands

Highland County has changed the date for their electronics & tire recycling event. The new date will be September 25th at the Highland County Community Action Lot between 8am-noon. This is a change from their original date of October 2nd.

For event rules, you can find the acceptable electronics list, by going to www.ait-recycle.com

Unacceptable electronics include but are not limited to ammunition, asbestos, explosives, medical supplies, freon and hazardous waste.

Miscellaneous tires and TV’s will be priced on site.

State law prohibits more than 10 tires being transported at a time unless you have registered with the EPA.

Due to high demand, they will stop accepting items when containers are full, as it will be a first come first serve basis.

Recycling Fees:
First 5 passenger tires are free.

Beyond that:
Each passenger tire is $4 each
Truck tires 19.5-24.5 are $12 each
Farm tractor tires $40 each
OTR tires will be priced on site
CRT monitors are $5 each
Large printers $5 each
LED & LCD TV’s $20 each
All other TV’s $30 each

Fayette County will be doing an “electronics only” event at 1580 Robinson Road SE in Washington Court House on November 12th from 8am-2pm.
