Electronics (E-Waste)

Body

Due to changing electronic waste recycling markets the City will no longer be offering our biannual e-waste drop-off events but we have partnered with a third-party vendor for their quarterly events; more information about the quarterly events here. Residents and businesses can always drop off electronic waste at 3 easy-to-use local locations 6 days a week. See our Drop-Off Locations below for details.

What Is E-Waste?

E-waste is anything that has an electrical cord or runs on batteries. E-waste cannot be put in trash or recycling containers since it contains hazardous materials. In fact, it has been illegal to dispose of electronics with hazardous components since February, 2006. Common e-waste items include:

  • computers, laptops, components  & accessories (CPU, monitor, keyboard, mice, cables, external hard drives)
  • TVs of any kind (CRT*, plasma, LCD, etc.)
  • stereos and accessories (speakers, cables)
  • all phones (mobiles phones with batteries removed; landline phones plus cords)
  • electric & battery-operated tools
  • light fixtures/lamps (remove bulbs)
  • electronic toys/games, cameras
  • CDs, DVDs, VHS tapes, and other media

Special notes:

Older CRT TV

*Damaged or broken CRT TVs must go to the County Transfer Station

**Modern Smoke Detectors contain radioactive material and must be mailed back the manufacturer
