The community lined up Saturday to get rid of some of their old electronic items.

Hundreds of cars lined up at Rush-Henrietta High School to drop off their old computers, laptops, cell phones or TV's as part of an electronic waste recycling event. Many people don't realize that some of these items contain materials that are hazardous to the environment. This event was a perfect opportunity for people to drop off their out-dated electronics to be properly disposed.

"I think a lot of people keep stuff that is laying around because they are not really sure what to do with it and they just want to make sure it doesn't end up in a landfill or somewhere that it's not supposed to be," school social worker Mike Elphick said.

More than 40,000 pounds of electronics were disposed today.
