Electronics are always a hot buy around Christmas time, but it's sometimes difficult to find room for the new electronics when the old, out-dated electronics are gathering dust on a TV stand or piled up in boxes in the basement or garage.
Electronics are hard to recycle because of the materials and chemicals used to build them, which is why many landfills no longer accept electronics because these materials can contaminate the soil and potentially pollute water.
The city of Mammoth Spring will hold an Electronics Recycling Day Dec. 9 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
There will be a small charge for the city to haul off the electronics to the Tri-County Recycling Center.
People can deliver the electronics that need to be recycled to Mammoth Spring City Hall where a truck will be parked to haul off items.
Those needing assistance to load heavier electronics can make arrangements with city hall for a city employee to come by and help.
