Have electronics you need to recycle? From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 4., the Panther Band Alliance is sponsoring a free community recycling event at Bonney Lake High School.

Everything from computers, laptops, appliances, stereos, DVD players, TVs, bicycles, motorcycles, barbecues to lawn mowers are accepted whether they are working or not.

The recycling services are free and cash donations will go toward helping the award winning Bonney Lake Marching Band travel to St. George, Utah to compete in the Bands of America Marching Championships in November 2014.

The trip will cost roughly $1200 per student and there are currently about 70 students in the band, Panthers band director Travis Mills said.

Any proceeds from recycled raw materials will go to local charities. Among those helping with the donations are Seattle Children’s Hospital and St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
