Responding to requests by residents for more opportunities to recycle unwanted electronics, Lee’s Summit opened a permanent electronics recycling facility.
It is open to the public 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, and located at the Resource Recovery Park, 2101 SE Hamblen Road.
The cost to recycle electronics is $10 per cubic yard. There is a minimum charge of $5. Some examples of acceptable items include televisions, computers, monitors, and printers. A full list of acceptable items is available on the city’s website at http://cityofls.net/Environment/Recycling/Electronics-Recycling.aspx
For the last several years, the city has offered electronics recycling events to the public at least once or twice a year. Those popular events will no longer be offered by the city. Also, electronics will not be collected at the North Recycling Center.
