Drop Off Electronics and Appliances for Recycling Saturday at The Meadows

Rid your household of out-dated or broken computers and other electronics that are accumulating in your garage or basement.

Are you constantly tripping over the old broken toaster oven in the basement? Is your closet stacked with outdated computer components? This weekend you'll get a great chance to get rid of them, and you won't have drive far.

The City of Lake Saint Louis is holding an electronics and appliance drop-off recycling event for households and businesses at the Meadows Shopping Center on Sat., Sept. 29, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  

Initiated three years ago by the City’s Green Environmental Advisory Committee, this year’s recycling event again will be managed by Web Innovations & Technology Services (WITS), Missouri’s largest not-for-profit recycling agency. WITS either reconditions dropped-off items for reuse in the greater St. Louis area or takes them apart for recycling. 

Possible items for recycling include:

  • computers, monitors and other computer hardware including cables
  • office/business equipment and machinery
  • telecommunications equipment including phones and clocks
  • televisions and VCR’s
  • stereos
  • cameras
  • audio/video equipment
  • data storage devices including CD’s and VHS tapes
  • home electronics such as blenders, toasters and irons
  • large appliances such as washing machines and dryers, dishwashers, furnaces and hot water heaters
  • home medical equipment
  • industrial machinery
  • lawn mowers, tillers and tools
  • air conditioners, refrigerators, humidifiers
  • old motors, transformers, electrical equipment, power supplies and car batteries 

There is a $5 suggested donation for each computer monitor and laptop, television, large appliance, and all freon-containing devices. All other items may be dropped off free of charge. All payments and donations of reusable items may be tax deductible as WITS is a not-for-profit agency.  

Unacceptable items for this recycling event include tires, wood furniture, other wood products, paint and paint cans, and household and industrial chemicals.
