The Town of Clifton Park was recently notified by our Electronics Recycling vendor that they will begin charging to accept certain items. For several years, the Town has accepted all electronics for recycling free to Clifton Park residents at the Transfer Station. By providing this drop off service throughout the year, the Town has provided a convenient option for the collection and subsequent recycling of unwanted electronic items. After conducting a bidding process, it became clear that the entire industry has established fees for certain items. The chart below details the electronics we will continue to accept for free and the items that will require a fee for disposal. The fees will offset the Town’s cost of disposing of these items. We are hopeful the industry environment will change in the future, to allow the Town to once again accept all items free of charge. For additional information, please contact the Transfer Station at 371-6669 or Scott Reese at 371-6651.
