E-Waste Accepted at Revere on January 20

Many residents may have received new electronic items over the holidays and are unsure of what to do with the old items. Do not throw them in the black or blue bins because they will end up in landfill.

The following items will be accepted: desktop computers, smartphones, cellphones, LCD monitors and televisions, CRT televisions and monitors, tablets, GPS devices, hard drives, laptops, printers and scanners, digital cameras, DVD players, VHS players and stereos and keyboards and mice.
