Recycling fair draws a big crowd

Posted: Updated:
PEORIA, Ill. (WEEK) -

If you are doing spring cleaning, maybe you are ready to pitch your old electronics. 

Cars lined up by Kuusakoski Recycling for a recycling fair Saturday. Senator Chuck Weaver teamed up with Kuusakoski Recycling and the Peoria Disposal Company to make this happen. Senator Weaver said a service like this is an asset for the community. 

"This is really a great opportunity for people to come out and get rid of some things that they've had sitting around their garages and basements [...] people have enjoyed coming through the line," said Weaver. 

They take things like computers, printers and things that might have lead inside of the screens. The purpose of this event was to raise awareness and to let people know this service is available. If you missed it Saturday, you can still stop by Kuusakoski but there will be a fee.
