Friday, June 24th is 406 Recycling’s monthly electronics recycling event supporting the Good Samaritan Thrift Store. This monthly event is a great time to responsibly recycle broken, outdated, or unwanted electronics.
The collection takes place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the parking lot of the Good Samaritan Thrift Store located at 3067 North Montana Avenue. Most office, computer, and entertainment-related electronics are accepted for data-secure, responsible recycling. Many items are accepted for free including personal electronics, office equipment, entertainment systems, and accessories. Charges may apply for older-style TVs and monitors, large televisions, and microwaves. A voluntary ten-dollar donation to Good Samaritan is encouraged.
406 Recycling’s food scrap and compostable collection program, 406 Compost will also be on-site to talk to individuals and businesses about compost collection and compostable food service options. A bucket exchange program for rural customers is also available for those wanting to keep organics out of their trash and away from critters. Current exchange sites include The Good Samaritan and The Real Food Store. 406 Compost is proud to be a contractor for the City of Helena and provide front door service to homes in and near town.
