Things like computer mice, keyboards, or old landline phones can create a mess. But it's illegal to just throw them away.
That's why the city of Hannibal is holding a city wide clean up day October 13 for their residents, which now will allow e-recycling.
Any and all unwanted electronics are acceptable for drop off.
"And this year Allied Waste has teamed up with a vendor that would like to come in and accept all electronics that we can bring into them and that's everything. I mean everything from type writers, to cell phones...it goes on and on and on," Brian Chaplin, Project Manager for the City of Hannibal, said.
If you plan on dropping off an old TV or monitor, there is a $5 fee per item, but other than that this event it free.
