The Buffalo News reported that the city will be establishing an electronic waste drop off site to comply with an expected state law.
The city intends to offer recycling of electronic equipment, such as computers and TV sets, when it begins its privatized garbage collection and recycling system this fall.
Dawn M. Timm, Niagara County environmental coordinator, said that a free drop-off facility for electronics is to be placed at the Youth and Recreation Department headquarters in Altro Park on Willow Street.
The city will be paid 5 to 6 cents per pound, depending on the volume of material dropped off.
Timm said the service will bring Lockport into compliance with an expected state ban on disposing of electronics in regular trash.
