Iredell County Solid Waste will start charging for disposal of CRT TV’s and monitors…
In 2013, Iredell County Solid Waste proposed charging $10.00 per unit for the disposal of TV’s and computer monitors that contain cathode ray tubes (CRT). Because of a favorable deal with an electronics recycling vendor, we were able to waive the fee and allow residents of Iredell County to dispose of these material at no cost. Iredell County was one of the last counties in the state to have the ability to offer free disposal to its residents but that will soon come to an end. Beginning July 1, 2015, Iredell County Solid Waste will no longer waive the fee for disposal of CRT TV’s and computer monitors. A $10.00 per unit cost will be imposed for the disposal of all CRT TV’s and monitors. This fee is necessary to cover the cost charged to the county by recyclers for accepting the material for recycling.
CRT TV’s and monitors are not accepted at the convenience sites, however, in order to help, the Solid Waste Department will offer an amnesty day to allow people to dispose of these items without making the drive to Statesville or Mooresville. This will be a one-time free offer. Iredell County residents looking to take advantage of this deal should make sure they have a current Solid Waste decal and visit one of the following locations on June 13, 2015:
West Site, located at 257 Watermelon Road from 7 am-12pm
Central Site located at 3918 Wilkesboro Hwy, 115 North from 1pm-5pm Harmony Site located on Hwy 901 from 7am-12pm
CRT TV’s and monitors that have not been scavenged will continue to be taken at Statesville Twin Oaks and Mooresville Transfer Station at no charge until July 1, 2015.
