La Salle County residents wanting to get rid of an unwanted TV set may want to take notice.

Registration opened for La Salle County’s next free electronics recycling event.

The event is scheduled to take place 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 3, at the La Salle County Governmental Complex, 707 E. Etna Road, Ottawa.

A limit of two TVs will be collected per vehicle.

As a result of the early registration program, the e-recycling event Aug. 29 was more efficient with shorter lines than previous events. Past drop offs have resulted in lines down Etna Road stretching to Route 23.
