OSS Solid Waste District’s Spring Electronics Collection

Give your spring cleaning a spark with the Ottawa Sandusky Seneca Solid Waste District’s TV & Electronics collection. This will be the first special collection provided by the OSS Solid Waste District this year.

Household hazardous waste, residential tire, and appliance collections will be held this fall with more information on those to be released later, as the District is still finishing up the last agreements with locations and vendors for them.

The upcoming TV & Electronics collection, like all collections provided by the District, requires that all participants register in order for their items to be collected. Collections are open to Ottawa, Sandusky and Seneca County residents including all residents of Bellevue and Fostoria. Businesses and institutions will not be accepted at these collections. Registration opens March 4 at 8:00 A.M. Residents can register at RecycleOSS.org and following the link provided on the home screen. Registration can also be done by calling the OSS District office at (419) 334-7222 extension 0 and following the prompt provided.

There will be a $5 charge for glass tube televisions that are 24” or less, and $10 for ones that are 25” and larger. Console, DLP, and Projection screen TV’s are not accepted in this collection. Televisions with broken screens or bare tubes are also not accepted for the safety of the collection volunteers. A full list of items accepted and not accepted can be found at RecycleOSS.org/television-electronics-collection/.

Unlike other years, there will only be one collection date for each of the special collections offered by the District. This makes registration vital for the 2022 collections to ensure your spot in the collection. Remember, if a resident does not register, they will be unable to participate in the collection. Because registration is limited, please do not sign up unless you know you will attend the event. It is encouraged to provide your confirmation email when in line at the collection to speed up the process, but is not mandatory as long as you are registered. Information specific to all of the District’s special collections can be found at RecycleOSS.org, or by calling (419) 334-7222 and speaking to one of the District’s staff members.
