There is no need to remove staples, folders, paper clips or other metal bindings. Acceptable items for e-waste recycling include televisions, computers, laptops, cell phones, telephones, printers, copiers, fax machines speakers, radios, stereos, keyboards, DVD players and VCRs. Residents are asked not to bring household appliances, batteries, ink/toner cartridges, cans or bottles.
