Carilion partners with River Acceptance to host electronics recycling event. It will take place at the Carilion Clinic Riverside Campus parking lot at 3 Riverside Circle in Roanoke.
People can bring in their old computers, printers, tablets, phones, power cables or other unused electronics on Saturday, January 8 from 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
