Get rid of that junk September 19th in Owatonna. The Retrofit Companies, TRC, is coming to Owatonna on Saturday, September 19, and is taking your old electronics and appliances. It's like an adult Christmas for people who have been wondering how they were going to get rid of those old TVs, microwaves, and or computers/laptops.

The event is taking place at 1010 Hoffman Drive in Owatonna, and it's going to operate a little different than what you may be used to. People coming to recycle their old appliances/electronics are being asked to put items in the trunk of their cars if they can, to stay in their vehicle if possible when you aren't in your vehicle stay 6 feet away from people, and they are ONLY taking credit cards for payment, so don't try to pay with cash.

Another change from recent years is there will not be any paper shredding being offered at this event.

There is more information on this flyer. It will let you know the prices for the items, which are pretty reasonable, and what items they will be taking, which includes cell phones. The recycling event will run from 9am to 1pm.
