A separate electronics collection will be held on Saturday, September 25, also in Rock Glen. Contact the GLOW office for copies of the final reports for these collections. Appointments will start to be taken in mid-July. Click on the notification forms to be notified of the dates and start of appointments for these collections.

Two to three weeks before the collection you will be sent a packet of information that includes  directions to the site, safety information and the list of acceptable and unacceptable materials. You must bring your envelope to the collection to give to the person manning the check-in station. It will have your time highlighted in the top left corner of the label and serves as proof that you have an appointment. Confirmation of the electronics appointments will be by postcard.
