INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — Receive a new computer or TV for Christmas and not sure what to do with your old ones? Sorting through your household items and finding old cell phones, CD players, stereos and clock radios to discard of, but not sure how to do it in an environmentally-friendly way? Recycle them at the Annual Electronics Recycling Event on Saturday, Jan. 28 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Indian River County Fairgrounds, 7955 58th Ave. Vero Beach.
