I think that recycling is important for our environment because I've watched local landfills run out of room in my lifetime. I've seen the effects these landfills have on the surrounding area and watched the local residents fight the expansion of them. That's why I think we should reuse and recycle everything we can.
In the past decade, electronic gadgets have taken over, which is a good thing! However, how many of these gadgets do you have that no longer work? Gadgets such as old TVs, VCRs, cell phones, pagers, computers, scanners, monitors, digital cameras, CD players, copiers, and microwaves are acceptable items to recycle in Oldham County's "E-Cycle Program."
This program is available for free to all Oldham County KY residents. Take your recyclables to the Oldham County Recycling Center at 3943 Jones Drive across from the Oldham County High School. There is a special container marked "Electronic Recycling" there. If the items you bring are too heavy to put in the bin, you can set them against the overhead door. If it is still too heavy you can call the Solid Waste & Recycling Director at 502-565-1007 or for more information.
With it being this convenient there is no excuse not to drop off unwanted electronic items. Electronics contain hazardous metals like cadmium and lead which are dangerous to the family, so why keep them around? Dispose of them properly and they can be recycled as a bonus! So if you call Oldham County your home, drop those electronics off as soon as you can.
And if you don't live in Oldham County but would like to, give our buyers agent Kim Wolfe a call at 502-387-5289. She'll be happy to help you find that perfect home! Or you can get started by searching for homes on our website for free.
