Reminder: Recycle old TVs, computers, refrigerators, tires and more at Saturday collection event
Washtenaw County residents can drop off their unwanted appliances, furniture, household hazardous wastes and more Saturday at the county's semi-annual Clean-Up Day.
From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Eastern Michigan University’s Rynearson Football Stadium at 799 N. Hewitt Road in Ypsilanti, old materials from around the house can be dropped off for safe and sustainable disposal.
It’s the second event of the year the Washtenaw County Solid Waste Program hosts for area residents. The first event occurred in the spring in Chelsea.

Lawn mowers can also be dropped off at the collection event, provided they are drained of gasoline.
The event is free and intended for Washtenaw County residents only, as it is funded by local entities. Donations of $10 per carload are suggested to decrease the cost of disposal for the Washtenaw County Solid Waste Program.
There are limits on the number of items accepted. Residents can bring one television, one Freon-containing appliance and one computer per car load, but an additional $10 donation is suggested for each additional item.
People can also drop off up to four car tires for free before a donation of $5 per additional tire is suggested.
