Weird Waste Day

As a service to the community the Mt. Airy Business Association in conjunction with Valley Green Bank invite everyone to take advantage of this opportunity to properly dispose of all unwanted electronics, including televisions, computers, printers, hard-drives, monitors, vcrs, radios, video games, transformers, and even batteries! Bring your weird waste to the Valley Green Bank parking lot on Sept 26th between 1:00 and 4:00 p.m. and we’ll make sure that it gets responsibly recycled.

Cost to you is $0.32 per pound.

We have engaged, IRN, a recycling network that helps businesses and institutions find the most responsible, efficient and cost effective way to recycle all materials . All products are hand dismantled and shredded. Each item is directed to the right end market and recycled safely, in full compliance with all environmental regulations.
