BRAINERD – The Crow Wing County Land Services Department will be hosting a commercial electronics collection event from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. May 19 at the Crow Wing County Landfill.
This is an opportunity for companies to get rid of their old electronic devices. Items accepted include: computer equipment such as central processing units, CDs/DVDs, monitors, memory, networking, printers, scanners and tape drives; other computer equipment, such as printed circuit boards, integrated circuits, precious metal scrap, wires and cables, motor generators, duplicating/copying equipment, banking equipment, barcode equipment, communication equipment, hospital/medical equipment, telephones and test/laboratory equipment.
Loose batteries will not be accepted at the collection event.
At the event, the landfill attendant will direct businesses to the collection site after the vehicle has been weighed. Equipment to be disposed of will be unloaded and weighed and the vehicle will be returned to the landfill office to be weighed again. Companies will receive an invoice at that time. The disposal cost for business electronics is 40 cents per pound.
Billing for business/commercial will be done through the Release Office and credit cards, cash or checks will be accepted. These fees are payable on the day of the event or within 30 days of receipt of an invoice for companies that have a chargeable account at the discharge. If a business wishes to establish a charge account, they can contact the landfill office at 218-828-4392 prior to the event.
Government agencies eligible for state contract rates will be treated differently. They will be invoiced directly by Dynamic Recycling. Dynamic Recycling will verify the equipment and invoice the agency within two weeks of deposit, so no payment is required during the event.
