According to city officials, among the acceptable items at this year’s collection event are computers and computer components, office equipment, microwaves, vacuum cleaners and “basically anything that has a cord.” There will be a $20 fee for all televisions and monitors smaller than 32 inches brought to the e-cycle event.
