City of Austin’s electronics recycling event to return in May

The Austin City Council approved the citywide electronics recycling event at their Monday meeting to be held in May at the Mower County Fairgrounds.  KAUS spoke with Austin Mayor Steve King during the “Meet the Mayor” segment of “Wright Here, Right Now,” and he stated that the popular event is back after being cancelled in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic…

The city has been working in conjunction with the Mower County Public Works Department to hold the event since 2011, and Public Works Director Steven Lang stated to the council in a memo that the event has resulted in over five semi loads of recyclable materials being hauled away each year.  Details concerning what will and will not be accepted at the event are available on the City of Austin’s Facebook page at
