GREENFIELD — The Franklin County Solid Waste Management District’s “Clean Sweep” Bulky Waste Recycling Day will not take place this spring. The fall event is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 23.

According to a Franklin County Solid Waste Management District press release, district residents can take most items that are collected at Clean Sweep to the Greenfield Transfer Station at 86 Cumberland Road, which is open to non-residents for a $5 fee per load, plus specific disposal fees per item. For hours and pricing, visit tinyurl.com/GreenfieldTS.

Residents are encouraged to recycle computer equipment and televisions at their own town’s transfer station, if an electronic waste collection program is available there, or at the Greenfield Transfer Station. The release states residents can visit franklincountywastedistrict.org to find town-specific information on the 17 transfer stations in the district’s member towns.

Staples stores accept computer equipment (no TVs) free of charge. Residents are advised to call their local store for details. The Greenfield branch on the Mohawk Trail can be reached at 413-775-0293.

Additionally, various charities and nonprofits accept donations of working electronics, including Salvation Army and Goodwill stores. Residents are encouraged to call ahead to ask if an organization can accept their items.
