INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Office of Sustainability and local nonprofit RecycleForce are hosting a special post-holiday electronic recycling event on Saturday, Jan. 23 at Krannert Park.

"We invite residents across Marion County to participate in this safe and sustainable program as they clean and re-organize after the holidays," Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett said. "Together, we can work to divert this electronic waste from our landfills, all while protecting against COVID-19 transmission and continuing to offer re-entry employment opportunities to our neighbors."

Non-electronic material will not be accepted during this event.
