LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Thanks to MCG for e-cycling day

Letter to the editor:

It was a Big Relief to read in the Herald last week that there would be a place to go with a non-functioning computer. The Mahaska Communication Group was providing that service in a very easily accessible location, that of the basketball courts south of the Hy Vee, Saturday morning.

I assume that the MCG employees donated their time as a community service to assist with the work. They were all polite, helpful, and appreciative of these coming to make deliveries of old equipment.

Each person making a delivery was given a T shirt commemorating the event, as well as an explanation sheet informing the patrons of the large amount of undesirable elements that would have gone into our environment had they been taken to our landfill.

We highly commend MCG and its leaders for this very visible and important service to our area.

We are also trusting that in the future that this will be repeated, or a site set up where electronic equipment can be brought as needed.

Elmer and Carolyn Veldhuizen
