Starting in February, every other month the City of O’Fallon’s Environmental Services Department will host two events for the disposal of unwanted items. February’s events and dates are:

Free Electronics & Appliance Recycling Event – Drop off unwanted appliances and electronics for recycling in the west parking lot at CarShield Field from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, February 4. The parking lot is located at the southwest corner of Tom Ginnever Ave. and T.R. Hughes Blvd., O’Fallon 63366. The items will be recycled.

Basically anything that has an electric cord or takes a battery can be dropped off. The drop-off is available to all, including schools, churches and businesses as well as individuals, and the cost is free except for CRT (cathode ray tube) televisions and computer monitors. The fees for CRT drop-offs are:
