Garrett Duktig, president of the ONU Recycle Club, holds arm loads of computer devices and cameras that were turned into the club for recycling on Tuesday.

ONU and local residents are invited to dispose of their unwanted electronic equipment and other items to protect the environment by bringing them to Heterick Library between 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on Thursday.
