The state requires that electronics be recycled and not deposited in landfills or alongside the road. Big penalties are assessed for trashing the county as shown in the photo above. Double J Recycling in Austin is the county's electronics recycler. An e-waste recycling event is also planned in Delta April 15. If it has a cord or takes a battery, bring it to the Safeway parking lot April 15 between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. The cost is 35 cents per pound. The annual e-waste recycling event is sponsored by Altrusa International of Delta, the Delta Rotary Club, Alpine Bank and Double J Disposal.
At their March 5 meeting Commissioners Doug Atchley, Mark Roeber and Don Suppes made two appointments to the county planning commission. Steve Shea was reappointed for a three-year term.
