Get rid of your unwanted electronics this weekend when the Challenger Learning Centers hosts its annual E-Waste Collection, and have some family fun to benefit the center.

The learning center on Venture Way doesn’t benefit directly from the recycled items, so volunteers will gladly accept cash donations in support of Challenger’s mission to inspire Maine students in science, technology, engineering, and math.

The suggested cash donation is $10 for the first item and $5 for each additional item. All donations of $25 or more will receive a special NASA ‘thank you’ gift. Plus, there will be volunteers on hand to unload all the electronics from your vehicle. So you only have to lift that old, giant TV once! And it doesn’t matter where you live. Residents of all communities are welcome. Find a list of acceptable items on Challenger’s website.

Businesses that have old computers or other e-waste to get rid of can make arrangements to drop them off tomorrow. Just call (207) 990-2900, extension 4 to set up a time for your delivery.

After you drop off the stuff you don’t want, the folks at Challenger Learning Center hope you’ll head to Sprague’s Nursery on Union Street for the Fall Family Festival from 10 to 2. There will be animals, make and take crafts, a juggler, and a lot more fun, with all the proceeds of the day to benefit the learning center’s camp programs. Get more information at the Challenger Learning Center’s website.
