ITEMS ACCEPTED AT NO CHARGE: Computers, laptops, PDAs, cellphones, mice, keyboards, toner cartridges, CD/DVD players, radios, network equipment, wires, stereos, speakers, telephones, microwaves, small household appliances, and auto and marine batteries.
$10 DISPOSAL FEE APPLIES: all TVs and monitors, printers, mini-fridges, air conditioners, dehumidifiers and other coolant containing appliances.
