Providing residents with the option of dropping off our old electronics at DPW is a nice overture, but is a far cry from the COMPREHENSIVE RECYCLING REFORM Hyattsville needs to the current system. Our e-waste should be picked up in front of our houses and at our apartment buildings, alongside our other recyclables.

Agree with Sam. So often I'll see TV sets and other electronic devised being set out with regular garbage. If the City would hold these more often than once or twice a year, maybe there would be a place that they could store the discarded material until they ship out all the other electronics.
