A Word about Recycling — April 5

First off, if you have any electronic items no longer used and just taking up space, mark your calendars of the April 18th Electronics Recycling Event taking place at the Texas State University’s Strahan Coliseum north parking lot.
It’s a drive-through event with many there willing to unload your old TV, computer, keyboard, printer, floppy disks, cellphone, radio, speakers, etc. If it is electronic, they can probably take it.
All these items turned in will be put to the best use possible.
