TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- Anyone who had an old television or radio lying around the house had the chance to get rid of it one and for all, and safely.
TVs, computers, printers, microwaves and many more electronics were accepted at Saturday's electronic recycling event at Seaman Middle School.
The recycling club at the school partnered with Howie's Recycling out of Manhattan, and let workers set up a truck. Workers loaded up Topekans' unwanted electronics.
Howie's Recycling charged a small fee for TVs because of its lead content.
The event was held so that all the electronics wouldn't end up at a landfill.
Last year, the event gathered about 24,000 pounds of electronic items.
