Tommy Young, a rising 11th grade student at Grace Academy, spoke briefly at Bainbridge Rotary this week about his Eagle Scout project to help solve the matter of electronic waste. Tommy is a member of BSA Troop 502.

This Saturday, May 27, from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m., the public is invited to bring their old electronic waste to the Howard Johnson parking lot between the hours of 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Working in collaboration with SmithCo Recycling, they will accept electronic items, such as old air conditioners, batteries of all kinds, CD players, computers, copiers and printers, refrigerators, washers and dryers, vacuum cleaners, TVs, VCR’s etc., which can be turned in for recycling, rather than taken to the landfill.

Any questions can be directed to SmithCo at 229-220-1582.
