If you have some unwanted electronic devices that you have been meaning to get rid of, your chance to do it will be happening soon.

Chances are, you have some things lying around the house, or in the garage that either don't work or you simply don't use anymore. I'm talking about a broken DVD player or TV that you can't just throw out in the dumpster. Well, if you are ready to make some more room in your home/garage, and you live in Vanderburgh County, your chance to get rid of those old and unwanted electronics is coming up in September.
