CyberCrunch, a Hempfield, Pa.-based electronics recycling company, is hosting a series of e-waste recycling events across Westmoreland County, Pa., starting with a collection in Murrysville on March 3.
Residents can bring old computers and accessories, cell phones and iPods for free, and products like VCRs, DVDs, coffeemakers and toasters will be accepted for a $10 fee. Light bulbs, alkaline batteries and televisions will not be accepted.

Westmoreland County residents have had few options for recycling electronics since a fire shut down Westmoreland Cleanways in Unity in April.
The nonprofit organization suspended electronics recycling as it works to establish a new facility.
Private companies like CyberCrunch can partially fill the gap, but it's still tough to find a way to dispose of televisions.
Export's E-Loop recycling center will accept electronics, including TVs, but charges a fee for most items.
