Numerous types of items are being accepted this Saturday, June 11, from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. at United Methodist Church, 407 Edwardsville Road, in Troy as part of what is called an “e-cycle” event designed to encourage local residents to dispose of unneeded things in a responsible manner as part of their spring clean-up efforts.
Sponsored by the Troy/Maryville/St. Jacob/Marine Chamber of Commerce, the items being collected at this e-cycle event include papers that needed to be shredded, outdated, unused, old prescription medications, eyeglasses and hearing aids plus various electronics items and metals.
