A free Kent County program wants to help you get rid of those older televisions and monitors in the basement.

County officials say they've partnered with a manufacturer program to provide mass recycling services for older-model TV’s and computer screens.

The cathode ray tube or CRT TV’s and computer monitors can be dropped off free of charge at Kent County electronic recycling facilities in Rockford and Grand Rapids, and the South Kent Landfill in Byron Center.

The program runs until the end of September, and you can contact the Kent County Department of Public Works for more information.

The department says nearly 6 million pounds of recyclable electronics have been collected at county facilities since 2001.
