E-Cycling Event Benefits NATH, Good News Project
RHINELANDER--An electronic e-cycling event is coming to Rhinelander soon and proceeds benefit the Frederick Place homeless shelter.
Non-profit Good News Project of Wausau is hosting an electronics recycling event at Charter NEX films on Rhinelander's west side.
Northwoods Alliance For Temporary Housing spokesperson Tammy Modic says they won't accept major appliances, but many other electronic items are desired...
"They won't accept your washers, dryers, refrigerators, but they do accept computers, monitors, speakers, air conditioners, dehumidfiers, microwaves, vacuums, coffee pots. Anything that plugs in that's not a major appliance..."
Modic says the event will be held under COVID rules and requires a sign-in. Staff will unload the items from the donor's vehicles. She says most items are 40 cents per pound. If there's things like a broken TV screen, it's considered a haz-mat situation and the price goes to 60 cents a pound. She says the event helps both parties...
"It is a fundraising project for both Good News Project and NATH-Frederick Place are non-profits. Your donation for getting rid of these products is tax-deductible..."
The hours are Friday, August 14 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday, August 15 from 9 a.m. to noon.
