KYKOTSMOVI, Ariz. -- The state is encouraging residents of northeastern Arizona to recycle unwanted electronics.

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality is hosting a recycling event Saturday at the village of Kykotsmovi (Key-COATS'-moh-vee) on the Hopi reservation. Organizers anticipate receiving televisions, computer equipment, monitors, batteries, DVD players, fax machines and cameras.

Residents of surrounding communities on the Hopi and Navajo reservations also are welcome to drop off electronics.

Department director Henry Darwin said 50 tons of waste had been collected at two previous recycling events on the Hopi reservation.

The department has collected 2.4 million pounds of electronics waste since the recycling program began in August 2009.
