Electronics Recycling at KPL

By Mel  |  KPL News

Kirkwood Public Library Is working with PCs for People to offer FREE Electronics Recycling in February. Drop your old electronics in the big blue bin near the public copier. 

What can you recycle? (Working or Not) 

  • Computers 
  • Tablets: (iPads must be iCloud unlocked)
  • Cell Phones: 
  • Accessories: Mice and Keyboards, Cables and Cords, SD Cards, Laptop Batteries

All items must fit in the bin, so if the bin is full or your item is too large, you won’t be able to leave it with us. Please limit to one at a time, and only bring what you can carry yourself, our staff are keeping our library services on track, and won’t be available to help you unload.
