The University of Alaska Anchorage wants to help you get rid of your old electronics at a recycling event this weekend.

"The main thing is we want to prolong the life of our landfill," said Gary Smith, with Total Reclaim, a recycling service. "In order to do that, we need to keep recyclables out."

Smith says parts and pieces of the electronics can be recycled and reused.

"It may not be the same, but there's always something else we can do with the material," he added.

The event is Saturday June 30, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the corner of Lake Otis and Providence Drive at UAA's west parking lot. 

There is a small fee for some TVs and computer monitors. For more information email uaa.recycling@alaska.edu or call 786-1129.
