2021 E-Waste Collection at the Good Samaritan

406 Recycling’s data-secure monthly electronics collection event in support of the Good Samaritan will continue in 2021, starting with this month’s collection on Friday, January 29th. The events will be hosted from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the parking lot of the Good Samaritan Thrift Store (3067 N. Montana) on the last non-holiday Friday of the month. A voluntary ten dollar donation to Good Samaritan is encouraged. Most items remain free, see flyer for updated charges.

Businesses with large amounts of material, households needing residential pickup, or institutions needing receipts for data destruction are encouraged to call at 406-449-6008 to discuss alternative arrangements.

See attached flyer for details and 2021 dates. We look forward to helping you responsibly clear out your unwanted electronics.
