The Waukegan Public Library's Off the Grid team hosts a free recycle event for paper and electronic waste from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 19, in the parking lot behind the library at Clayton Street and Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue. Electronics and computer equipment to be collected include wires and cables, circuit boards, monitors, VCRs, DVDs, cameras, gaming consoles, modems, and telephones. Paper can have staples, regular paper clips and rubber bands, but no large metal, plastic, x-rays, or batteries. Electronic and computer items broken down into components for reuse and/or refurbishment and shredded paper is taken to a mill for pulping and recycling. This will be the first recycle event at the Waukegan Public Library. The event is free and open to the public. Call (847) 623-2041 or visit www.waukeganpl.org.
