Elk County Recycling Coordinator Bekki Titchner emphasized the vast amount of electronic items they are being inundated with at the Community Recycling Center in St. Marys. During Tuesday's Elk County Solid Waste Authority (SWA) meeting, Titchner attributed the upswing to the landfill ban which took effect in January and prohibits any computer (desktop or laptop), computer monitor, computer peripheral (printers), televisions, etc. be deposited at a landfill.
