Televisions also will be accepted, but for a disposal fee.
Monitors, LCD screens and older televisions with picture tubes will be charged a processing fee of $5 for up to a 19 inches or $10 for LCD screens and TVs larger than 19 inches.
Large appliances such as refrigerators, washers/dryers, dishwashers, freezers, microwaves, blenders, toasters, bread machines and hair dryers also will be accepted.
The items will be recycled and all funds raised by the Kiwanis during the events will be used to support local charities.
