Five state agencies cleaned out their offices on Friday as part of a recycling drive.
Tax Director Fred Pablo said the effort will remove clutter from state offices, keep trash out of landfills and help the environment.
State employees are being encouraged to get rid of items including old computer printers, scanners, newspapers, telephone books, televisions, batteries, plastic and bottle caps.
Money collected from the recycled materials will be donated to the state’s general fund.
Participating departments include taxation, accounting and general services, public safety, labor and industrial relations, and the attorney general’s office.
