GOSHEN — Effective Feb. 12, Orange County is temporarily suspending the acceptance of electronics waste at the Newburgh and New Hampton Transfer Stations.

Electronics waste that will no longer be accepted includes (but is not limited to) the following items:

Televisions, (e.g. Cathode Ray Tubes and flat screens), printers, copy machines, computers, lap tops, stereos, speakers, DVD players, VCRs, set top boxes, video game consoles, cell phones, tablets, cables and wires, etc.

County officials acknowledged the inconvenience this suspension in services may cause and look forward to the resumption of services as quickly as possible.

In the meantime, some electronics waste items can be brought to chain electronics retailers for proper disposal and recycling.

Call each retailer before you go for details or call the Orange County Recycling Coordinator at 291-3246 or email esiljkovic@orangecountygov.com.
