Thomaston — Rockland Rotary held its annual E-Waste collection Saturday, Oct. 5, in a parking lot near Dunkin Donuts in Thomaston.

More than 20,000 pounds of electronic waste was collected, which will be partially recycled.

This year $2,000 of the proceeds will go to hurricane relief in the Bahamas to help the victims of Hurricane Dorian.

The Rotary club has been collecting electronic waste since 2011, and to date has recycled approximately 200,000 pounds.

The club holds its collection each year the first weekend of October.

Further donations can be mailed to Rockland Rotary, P.O. Box 1812, Rockland, ME 04841.
