Springfield is partnering with BLH Computers at 1832 Stevenson to provide Electronic Recycling drop off for city residents. Beginning Saturday, October 1 through the close of business Saturday, October 15, residents can drop off all recyclable electronics (see accepted list below.) Hours are Monday through Friday 8am – 6pm and Saturday 10am – 6pm. You must unload items yourself – bring help if you need it.
