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.

Since this service is free only to residents within the corporate limits of Springfield, a Voucher is required and will be done at BLH at the time of drop-off. The Voucher is created with proof of residency that must be provided to BLH staff (driver’s license or photo ID). Questions about the Voucher program? Please call the Office of Public Works at 217.789.2255 or BLH at 217.585.1580.
