Columbus Zoo to Host Electronic Recycling Event

POWELL, Ohio (WCMH) — If you have any unwanted electronics, you can bring them with you to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium later this week.

On Thursday, the zoo is partnering with Accurate IT Services to host an electronic recycling drive from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the zoo.

Some items will charge to be recycled: monitors cost $20, flat screen TVs (LED, LCD and plasma) $30, and all other TVs $40.

Items not accepted include major appliances, alkaline batteries and light bulbs.

Anyone who wishes to participate in the recycling event but is not making it to the zoo that day can tell the parking lot attendant that they are there for recycling collection and will be allowed into the parking lot free of charge.
