"........Thumbs up to increased recycling....[Helena Independent Record - Jan 6, 2012]
The city of Helena continues to take incremental steps toward a more inclusive recycling program. Starting on Wednesday, Jan. 18, and on the third Wednesday of each month going forward, the transfer station will accept electronic waste — televisions, computers, monitors and the like. With personal electronics becoming ever-more affordable and ubiquitous, disposal becomes a larger problem, and it’s good to see the city moving toward finding a way to take these items, some of which have components that need special dismantling and disposal. There’s a per-item fee to be paid for now, which is hardly an incentive to recycle, but at least now residents have a regular and available option for disposing of electronic waste."
