The City of Dell Rapids held another free electronic recycling day on Saturday, October 28th, as part of their free rubble site days this year. This is the second time the city has held a free electronic recycling day for its residents.
“It was a good event. There were 46 TVs, several computer monitors, a lot of VCRs, radios, DVD players and other miscellaneous items dropped off,” said City Administrator Justin Weiland during the Dell Rapids City Council meeting on Monday, November 6th.
A total of two full trailers of electronics were collected during the event. Even though the event was free for Dell Rapids residents, the city incurred costs of $730 to pay staff members of SEAM, the electronic recycling company, to oversee the drop-off.
