Crow Wing County to host business electronics collection Sept. 18

The Crow Wing County Land Services Department will host an electronics collection event from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 18, at the county landfill site for businesses in Crow Wing County.

This is an opportunity for businesses to dispose of any old electronics.

Items accepted are:

• Computer equipment: CPUs, CD/DVD roms, monitors, memory, networking, printers, scanners and tape drives.

• Other equipment: circuit boards, integrated circuits, precious metal scrap, wire and cable, motor generators. Loose batteries will not be accepted.

• Specialized equipment: duplication/copying, banking, bar code, communication, hospital/medical, telephone, test/lab.

Stop at the Crow Wing County Landfill office and the attendant will direct businesses to the site where the collection takes place. We will off load your equipment, weigh it and give you a bill of lading for your records.

Arrow Global Asset Disposition, Inc. (formally known as Asset Recovery) will verify the equipment and invoice your company within two weeks of the dropoff, so no payment is required during the event.

Arrow Global Asset Disposition uses “NAID Certified with the National Association of Information Destruction” when destroying all data. The cost to dispose of business electronics is 35 cents per pound and Land Services pays the transportation fees. Local units of government that fall under the Minnesota State Contact may pay less on certain items.

Local businesses that plan to participate in this event are encouraged to contact the Environmental Services Solid Waste Office at 218-824-1290 so paperwork may be completed to expedite the wait time.
