3/24/2020 - Annual Electronics (E-Waste) Recycling Event Cancelled
The City of Salina has been monitoring the rapidly changing Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. Currently, City staff are working to make adjustments based upon guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) and the Saline County Health Department.

In response to previous and emerging COVID-19 guidelines, this year’s E-Waste Recycling Event, scheduled Saturday, May 2, 2020, has been cancelled.

These efforts are being made to align with the following:

• the President’s Coronavirus Guidelines for America: 15 days to slow the spread, which began on March 16 and involves avoiding gatherings of 10 or more people for a 15-day period;

• the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidance for the next eight weeks, which recommends that organizers (whether groups or individuals) cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States;

• Governor Kelly’s Executive Order NO. 20-04, effective through May 1 on social distancing to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in Kansas.

If you have any questions or for more information please call General Services at (785) 309-5750.
