Do a little research and you can find recyclers or scrap haulers nearby that will accept most items. When I decided to do some remodeling last summer I called Ace Towing and Scrap in North Lima . They picked up an old fridge, dishwasher, stacking washer-dryer and an old lawn mower. They did it for free because of the large number of items I had to remove. Try ohiodropoff**** for electronics recycling. I personally dropped off two old TVs at 3 pm on Saturday during the Salem event. They weren't turning people away. This was an excellent event and hopefully the city can hold additional drop-off days in the future.

So where were these items taken? My trash company would remove an old piece of furniture if I called before hand. But they will not take a fridge or dehumidifier until I pay someone to remove the freon. It would be nice to have a drop off where one could take items such as these. Also, old TVs.

I wonder how many of the items people dumped off could have been put out with their normal garbage pick up? They will pick up a lot, including large pieces of furniture if you call and let them know. Most do it for free with your regular pick up.

Lastnight, my microwave quit working! Lastnight! Not a few days ago where I could have disposed of it properly instead of it cluttering up my basement. It now sits beside an old TV, two old chairs, a couch and a pile of paint empty paint cans. I get to let it sit there for another year and pray like you know what that I don't have something happen in my life that I miss out on the big party event next year! Come on Salem...GET REAL!

"Big drop-off" event! Great celebration! Social event of the year! Looking forward to next year! Maybe next year they will have entertainment and hot dogs! >L.M.A.O.

Seriously, I live for the day this city comes into the 21st Century! Why does this only happen once a year?

We are living in a society and economy that clearly indicates...we are paying more for less! The days of televisions lasting 20 years is in the past. Appliances, microwaves, computer equipment...blah blah blah, if you can squeeze 4 or 5 years out of these products today...YOU are lucky. Why can't this City think outside the box and utilize this idea to generate revenue for this city? Is it that unreachable...REALLY?

The sensor is bad. It no longer shuts off after reaching set humidity level. It's almost 20 yrs old so it has to be on last legs

Too bad this article doesn't tell the part where they were turning people away around 11am on Saturday. Poor planning on the part of organizers??
