The “limited” category is new this year and was created so residents now have the ability to drop off televisions and/or CRT (tube) monitors at no cost. These drop offs are restricted to only three (3) types of these items per calendar year, per residence, with residency verification. A resident who brings in more than the allotted three items in the “limited” category will be charged the regular fee, with in-store coupon incentive, as set and required by BLH Computers.

Residents must create a voucher online at BLHComputers.com or at BLH’s in-store kiosk. A voucher created outside the store may be printed off and brought to BLH with the items or emailed to the resident and shown on their mobile device when dropping off their electronics. Please note that proof of city residency is required (driver’s license or photo ID) during drop off in addition to the voucher.
