Timing is everything.
Last week our washing machine literally died on us, I do not know what washing machine years are compared to human years, but our Neptune had served us for 14 years, so it was ready to retire.
It is now sitting in our garage with several other old appliances that ran their course of usefulness. Like I said before, timing is everything. This weekend, Sat., May 18 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., our dead and unwanted appliances can be taken to the Crook County Landfill for FREE, when they hold their annual free electronics and appliance recycling day.
Acceptable electronics are televisions, computer items (monitors, hard drives, and keyboards), copiers, printers, fax machines, stereos, scanners, and VCR/DVD players.
Acceptable appliance items that will be limited to two, will be refrigerators, freezers, and air conditioners. Unlimited items accepted will be stoves, dishwashers, washers, dryers, water heaters, and microwaves. All items must be empty; otherwise the appliance will not be free.
Now is a great time to look around your house and do some spring cleaning of those items that are past their prime and get them out of your way. If you want more information contact the Crook County Landfill at 541-447-2398.
