The Jefferson College Environment and Safety committee and Jefferson County will partner with Midwest Recycling Center to host an electronics recycling event on Thursday, Oct. 22, from 11 a.m.- 1 p.m. on the Hillsboro campus at the Yellow parking lot near the Veterans Memorial and Fine Arts building.
