The tradition of “Cleanest and Greenest” fairground in the West continues. Once again, the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds go “green” by sponsoring an e-waste recycling event May 2 and 3 at the fairgrounds. Most electronic waste can be brought to the collection center located just outside the front gate from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
