Electronics Recycling on Saturday, April 20th

Hello SWA Community,

Once again, WNYT and their partners will be sponsoring a huge electronics recycling day.

When:  This Saturday, April 20th, from 7:00 AM to 1:00 PM, at Taft Furniture in Colonie (1960 Central Avenue, 1 mile west of Route 155).

Unlike similar events in the past, there is no longer any requirement to get a permit from your local town hall.  Drive up and they'll take your stuff.

We know from past experience that this event is very well attended. Plan on waiting in line for a little while.
