Recycling program makes it easy to get rid of old electronics


With Christmas behind us, many people have new computers and other gadgets.

Now, a project in Wausau is helping to get rid of our old ones. The Good News Project in Wausau is accepting your old electronics, including TVs, microwaves and old computers.

Organizers said it's a safe and affordable way to get rid of it all.

"The biggest benefit is that they don't end up our landfill. So, 100% of what comes into our warehouse here gets recycled, gets stripped down, to the bare metals and plastics and wires," said Project Manager Mike Husnick.

The program accepts old electronics every Friday.

Organizers said it costs about $5 to $10 dollars to get rid of a computer.
