File 2010

Got an old, rabbit-eared TV sitting in your garage that you’re just itching to toss? Well a group of Oak Park and River Forest High School students will take it.

A handful of local teens are trying to raise money for a summer language-immersion trip to Spain. And to do so, they’re collecting unused electronics for recycling. Items can be dropped off at Green Home Experts, 811 South Blvd., in Oak Park. If you have questions, email mlewis939@att.net.

Meanwhile, the Economy Shop, 103 S. Grove Ave. in Oak Park, announced Thursday that it’s also starting an electronics recycling program. People can drop off unwanted computers, monitors, TVs, printers, fax machines, telephones, stereos, VCRs and DVD players during the shop’s normal drop-off hours. Those run from Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. to noon (except on sale days, according to a press release).
