POST FALLS, Idaho – It’s a good time to do your spring cleaning in Post Falls: the city organized a one-stop shop recycling event with a $5,000 grant from Post Falls Sanitation.
The city gets the grant each year to help encourage residents to recycle rather than fill up the landfill. This year, the city is trying something new: an e-recycling event.
On Saturday, April 27, Post Falls City Hall will have a drop-off station for, essentially, everything with a plug: telephones, old computers – even Christmas lights. The company will dispose of all personal material stored on hard drives and if you’re really concerned, will perform a data destruction in front of you for $15.
Additionally, the police department will be accepting prescription drugs, pills and medication as a part of National Drug Take Back Day. They will ensure the pills are disposed of properly.
St. Vincent Depaul will also be at city hall prepared to accept any other donations.
If Post Falls residents put any extra garbage outside of their trash bins before 7:30 a.m. Saturday, Post Falls Sanitation will come pick it up at no extra charge. Extra trash much be within a reasonable size to transport.
The Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, E-Recycle event at Post Falls City Hall will take items between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday.
