The Belle Vernon Area Rotary is accepting unwanted electronics this weekend as part of their community electronics collection event.

Starting at 8 a.m. Saturday, televisions, computers, monitors, printers, keyboards and consumer electronics such as stereos, microwaves, VCR and DVD players and Christmas lights can be dropped off at the Brunswick Zone Belle Vernon Lanes parking lot, 4742 Route 51, Rostraver.

The event is free, but donations will be accepted for the rotary club.

Big’s Sanitation, Brunswick Zone Belle Vernon Lanes and Westmoreland Cleanways and Recycling will help with the event.

A similar project was hosted last year at Chess Park in Monongahela, but officials said it got out of hand when people started to illegally dump televisions, computer monitors, old tires and other items.

Piles of items were spread throughout the park, which officials eventually taped off, posting a sign that read “No more dumping.” The trash pile grew so high that it obscured a World War II memorial.

A cleanup from the event took two days.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
