Friday will be the first in a series of days in which Salt Lake County residents may dispose of electronic waste for free.

Televisions, computers, radios, printers, cell phones and other electronic scrap materials may be taken to 1795 E. South Campus Drive (adjacent to the South Campus Drive TRAX station) from 8 a.m. to noon.

Materials will be accepted only from individuals and not from businesses, said Pamela Davenport, spokeswoman for the Salt Lake County Health Department, which is organizing the cleanup with its private-sector partner, Samsung.

The company pays for all electronic waste recycling in Salt Lake County, she added, noting that its involvement saved taxpayers $168,000 last year.

More than a dozen other electronic-waste collection days have been scheduled this spring and summer. The dates are:

• April 26, 8 a.m. to noon, Taylorsville City Hall, 2600 W. 5350 South;

• June 5, July 3 and Aug. 7, from 7-10 a.m., at the Mt. Olympus pavilion in Sugarhouse Park, 1500 E. 2100 South;

• June 12, July 10 and Aug. 14, from 7-10 a.m., at Sandy City Public Works, 8775 S. 700 West;

• June 19, July 17 and Aug. 21, from 7-10 a.m., at Holladay City Center, 4626 S. 2300 East; and

• June 26, July 31 and Aug. 28, from 7-10 a.m., at Draper City Park, 1300 E. 12500 South.
