BRAINERD — The Crow Wing County Land Services Department will conduct a business electronics collection event 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. May 19 at the Crow Wing County Landfill.

This is an opportunity for businesses to dispose of any old electronics. Items accepted include: computer equipment such as central processing units, CDs/DVDs, monitors, memory, networking, printers, scanners and tape drives; other computer equipment, such as circuit boards, integrated circuits, precious metal scrap, wire and cable, motor generators, duplication/copying equipment, banking equipment, barcode equipment, communication equipment, hospital/medical equipment, telephones and test/lab equipment.

Loose batteries will not be accepted at the collection event.

During the event, the landfill attendant will direct businesses to the collection site after the vehicle is weighed. Equipment to be disposed of will be unloaded and weighed and the vehicle will be directed back to the landfill office to be reweighed. Businesses will be provided with a bill at that time. The cost to dispose of business electronics is 40 cents per pound.

Billing for business/commercial will be accomplished through the landfill office and credit cards, cash or checks will be accepted. This fee is due the day of the event or within 30 days of receipt of an invoice for those businesses that have a charge account at the landfill. If a business wishes to establish a charge account, it may contact the landfill office at 218-828-4392 prior to the event.

Government agencies eligible for state contract rates will be handled differently. They will be billed directly by Dynamic Recycling. Dynamic Recycling will verify the equipment and invoice the agency within two weeks of the drop-off, so no payment is required during the event.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.

News, weather, sports — videos, photos, podcasts and social media — all covering stories from central Minnesota about your neighbors, your lakes, your communities, your challenges and your opportunities. It's all part of the effort to keep people connected and informed. And we couldn't do it without support.
