Free recycling of TVs, computers, laptops and monitors will start Jan. 2 at Goodwill stores statewide.
Goodwill will accept all electronic equipment - including keyboards, printers, other peripherals and cell phones.
"We offer more than 40 free, convenient drop-off locations across western and southcentral Washington," said Eric Hulscher, Goodwill operations manager overseeing the program. "Participating in the program is in keeping with Goodwill's reduce, reuse and recycle efforts."
He added, "This is a permanent, ongoing program, not a one-day event."
A Goodwill store and donation center are located at 603 S. Lincoln St. in Port Angeles.

E-Cycle Washington, created under a 2006 state law, provides for recycling of unwanted electronics products. Manufacturers are funding the project and the state Department of Ecology is monitoring the effort to ensure material is processed properly. Tacoma Goodwill is a certified collector in the program.
In 2008, Goodwill provided job-training and placement services to 5,241 people with proceeds from gently used clothes and household items that are sold in Goodwill's stores. Donations to the nonprofit agency are tax deductible.
The Sequim Gazette is located at 147 W. Washington Street in Sequim.
