The village of Oswego will host a community recycling day on Saturday, April 13 from 9 a.m. to noon at the village’s public works facility at 100 Theodore Drive, just south of Oswego High School.
The following items will be accepted at the event: electronics, including televisions at no additional charge, monitors, printers, computers, keyboards and mice, fax machines, videocassette recorders, portable music players, video game consoles, small scale servers, scanners, digital converter boxes, cable receivers, satellite receivers and digital video disc recorders.
Also accepted will be prescription drugs excluding EpiPens, eyeglasses, keys, cell phones, hearing aids, ink cartridges, Christmas lights, extension cords and Styrofoam.
Note: electronics recycling is open to Oswego residents only. You must present identification that proves your Oswego address, such as a current driver’s license.

Please rinse food containers and remove labels, tape and other packaging materials from your packaging foam. Styrofoam must be #6 type to be collected. Check the imprint on the container.
