Friday will be the last day for the collection of televisions or computer monitors at Quincy Recycle, 526 S. Sixth.

Quincy Recycle launched its e-waste collection program on Sept. 4, but restrictions in the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency e-waste program have forced the cancellation of collection of those items.

All other e-waste materials will continue to be accepted, such as printers, desktop computers, laptops, notebooks, netbooks, tablets, electronic keyboards, fax machines, VCRs, portable digital music players, DVD players, Blu-Ray players, DVRs, video game consoles, scanners, computer mice, digital convertor boxes, cable receivers, satellite receivers, servers, cell phones, PDAs, computer cables, CDs, circuit boards, memory boards and transformers.

Those items can be dropped off at Quincy Recycle weekdays from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. until noon.

Silver Saukees: Pittsfield's state title team to reunite after 25 years
Tony Baker recently watched a video of the 1991 Class A state championship game with his 11-year-old daughter. It had been several years since Baker, an all-stater as a senior at Pittsfield High School, had seen the game. "I sure was awful skinny, and those shorts were awful short," he said with a laugh. "But it was neat to watch. It's kind of a blur, but I can remember plays that were called in every game. It's so surreal."
