April recycling events planned in Clallam County

The time has come for a righteous cleansing.

This month in Sequim and Port Angeles, gardeners may shed their cracked plastic plant pots, desk jockeys can recycle their computers and everybody can dump dead freezers to benefit the Port Angeles Food Bank.

Earth Day is officially on April 22 this year. But Reforming Technology, a new home-based firm that recycles computers, will hold a warmup collection event on Saturday, April 12, in the former Kmart parking lot off U.S. Highway 101.

“You can save the dump fee and keep your electronic waste out of the landfill,” said Reforming’s owner, Ashley Baar.

“We completely destroy every hard drive,” she added, so recycling poses no security risks.

Reforming Technology will accept computer cases, laptops, monitors, mice, keyboards, printers, industrial copiers and televisions from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the lot at 3455 E. Kolonels Way, across from Wal-Mart just east of Port Angeles.

Some recycling fees are reduced especially for the April 12 event: computer cases cost $5 to recycle and laptops $3, for example.

Monitors up to 10 inches cost $15, while flat monitors are $10. Baar takes cash only.

To arrange e-waste recycling after April 12, phone Reforming Technology at 360-452-1463.
