"Recycle those Electronics on 4/27 at the Falls of the Ohio."

Surely near the top of the most persistent FAQ list is, "Where to recycle electronics?"

I have some. And I suspect I'll be driving over to the Falls on the 27th.


Do you have some spring cleaning planned? 

The Friends of the Ohio River Greenway and Falls of the Ohio are having a community recycling event to collect all of that unwanted equipment you have at home or at the office. We want to keep it out of the landfills and 5R Processors, Ltd. is providing us a 53 foot truck trailer to fill up and send off to be recycled.

So start piling up your electronics and bring them out on Saturday, April 27th to the Falls of the Ohio

10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
A part of the Earth Day Celebrations
201 W. Riverside Drive, Jeffersonville, IN 47130
This is off of I-65 Exit 0

OPEN TO THE PUBLIC: Details about Recycling

This event is open to anyone and free for recycling household electronics such as:
computers, monitors, printers, laptops, stereo equipment, cell phones, microwaves

Plastic TVs $5
TVs with cathode ray tubes and TV monitors with broken glass are accepted for $10
Refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners and dehumidifiers are accepted for $15
Projection/Wood Console TVs $15
Large Wood Speakers $10/pair

The Friends of the Ohio River Greenway are still looking for a local retailer to sponsor this event thus hopefully allowing for all items to be cost free. We will send out an update if we get a sponsor.

Not accepting items containing biohazards, hazardous waste, liquids, smoke detectors, or florescent bulbs

Optional hard drive cleansing services available for $10

For more information visit or call 715.322.4480

You will not only be doing good for our environment by bringing your electronic equipment to recycle, you will also be helping the Falls of the Ohio and the Friends of the Ohio River Greenway. If we fill up the entire tractor trailer then we will get a nice donation from 5R Processors.

Thank you for all that you do,

Shaunna Graf
Ohio River Greenway
