Electronics Waste Recycling Program

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - Save Money, Energy, and Natural Resources

 

What is Electronic Waste?

Electronic waste (e-Waste) is unwanted, non-working, or obsolete electronic devices that have reached the end of its useful life.

 

Why Recycle e-Waste?

Untreated e-Waste may contain hazardous material, which can pose serious risks to human health and the environment. Toxins contained in electronics, such as mercury and lead, can leach into drinking water and accumulate in plants and animals if not disposed of properly.
