FAIRMONT, W.Va. (AP) - Organizers say nearly 200 tons of unwanted electronics were collected during a recycling drive in Fairmont.

The drive conducted by Mission West Virginia and the Marion County Solid Waste Authority.

The president Mission West Virginia’s board, the Rev. D.D. Meighen, says the electronics include 4,500 televisions and more than 2,000 computer monitors.

Meighen tells The Times West Virginian (https://bit.ly/1pgQ1X9 ) that people, municipalities and companies brought electronics to the collection site at a former National Guard Armory during the recent drive.

The electronics were sent to Columbus, Ohio, for further salvage.
