Pana Mayor Steve Sipes received word Friday April 5, 2013 that BLH Computers, Inc. has approved a free electronics recycling collection for the City of Pana. The event will be held in conjunction with Pana Clean-up Day, Saturday May 11, 2013. The collection will be held at the PanaCity Hall parking lot, which is located just behind PanaCity Hall, 120 East Third Street on Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to noon.
Mayor Sipes has received many phone calls as to the City hosting another electronics recycling collection. Due to a recent law old electronics can no longer be picked up by trash haulers because electronics can no longer be placed in land fills. The list of items to be accepted will be functioning and nonfunctioning computers, games, copiers, phones, VCR’s, DVD players, Monitors, TV’s and various other electronic devices. This service is also sponsored by the City of Pana, Christian County Solid Waste Management and BLH Computers, Inc.
