Bensalem is holding an electronic recycling event for it's residents next week.

This is great if you're doing any spring cleaning or planning to do any spring cleaning this coming week.

Disposing of electronics can get tricky sometimes so this is the perfect way to recycle your old electronics properly.

The event is set for this coming Monday, May 13th through Saturday, May 18th. So you have a cool week to head down and drop off your unwanted things at the public works department at 3800 Hulmeville Rd.

This is actually pretty awesome because other towns in Bucks County who have held similar recycling events for electronics only set aside one weekend or day for drop offs while Bensalem Township gives you an entire week.

The hours for drop off are weekdays, 7:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m and Saturday 8 a.m.-2 p.m.
