Here's how to get rid of that old broken television this Saturday without throwing it over the fence and into the neighbor's yard.

The Challenger Learning Center at 30 Venture Way in Bangor will hold it's now annual Spring E-Waste event this Saturday, May 1st, between 8 a.m. and 12 noon.  They'll be accepting things like computer monitors, televisions, computer workstations, laptops, printers, monitors, fax machines, scanners, cell phones, and other electronic waste that you can't just stuff into a bag and then watch the garbage truck cart it off.

The Challenger Learning Center teaches science to boys and girls who want to become engineers and astronauts by providing them with very unique learning experiences that they call "missions." By dropping off your e-waste and making a small donation you can help the cause and keep the place up and running to the benefit of these motivated kids from Bangor and the surrounding areas.
