Computer equipment recycling event

The Moffat County Library is offering computer equipment recycling from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at 570 Green Street.

Because of the expenses involved with recycling and fuel costs for the trucks, there will be a nominal recycling charge. Unlike recycling cans, newspapers where the recycler pays you for these items, computer recycling costs money because of the hazardous waste elements.

The types of equipment that can be recycled include computers, printers, monitors, keyboards, speakers, cell phones, mice, scanners, all-in-one computers and all-in-one desktop printer/copier/scanners. Working cell phones will be donated to Advocates for use as emergency 911 phones.

For questions or additional information, contact Solutions Orientated Systems at 824-7414.

training class

The National Weather Service will be conducting training for weather spotters from 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday at the Moffat County Fairgrounds Pavilion.

The training is free and no pre-registration is required. Anyone with an interest in severe weather or who would like to enhance his or her education and become a weather spotter for the National Weather Service is invited to attend. For additional information, contact Jim Pringle at 243-7007, ext. 726.
