Electronics Recycling

E-cycling or electronics recycling is the practice of reusing, or distributing for reuse, electronic equipment and components rather than discarding them at the end of their life cycle.
 
Do not throw electronics out with household garbage or in your recycling bin! Electronics often contain toxic and finite metals and materials, such as lead, mercury, chromium, cadmium, beryllium, nickel, zinc, and brominated flame retardants. When not disposed of properly, these materials pollute our air, water, and soil, with consequences to human and animal health. Safely recycling outdated electronics can promote the safe management of hazardous components and supports the recovery and reuse of valuable materials.
 
Please bring items to the Electronics Recycling Drop-off site located at 150 W. Pine Street. Monday through Friday from 8:00am-1:00pm.
