What is E-Waste?

E-Waste is any discarded device that plugs in, charges up, or takes batteries. It ranges from:

  • Computers

  • Office electronic equipment

  • Entertainment devices

  • Mobile phones

  • Televisions

  • Refrigerators

Some devices contain rare and valuable heavy metals that can be removed and recycled. Some devices also contain contaminants such as lead, cadmium, beryllium, or brominated flame retardants. It is important to keep these heavy metals out of the landfill to prevent leaching into our groundwater supply.

Where can I take my E-Waste?

Electronic waste is banned from our landfill. Luckily, there are many places to take your electronic waste to be properly recycled. Find your device on the list to the right and you will see the various places to drop it off (and sometime for free!).
