Peoria-area residents are being asked to bring any outdated electronic items for a Saturday "e-cycling" event to be hosted by State Sen. Darin LaHood, R-Dunlap.

The event will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Kuusakoski Recycling Center, located at 2022 Townline Road in Peoria. Kuusakoski Recycling is offering the "e-cycling" event as a preview day for their new facility, which will start operations on Jan. 1, 2014.

Televisions, computers, monitors, printers, VCRs, DVD players and telephones are just a few of the acceptable items being collected. Attendees are strongly encouraged to "wipe" all hard drives on any old computers brought to the event.
