Recycle Electronics Graphic

Do you have an old TV or computer that's just taking up space in your home? One that you haven't even had plugged in, let alone turned on in... in you can't remember how long?

What should you do with that TV, computer or any other obsolete electronics? Recycle them! 

Although obsolete electronics have little to no resale value, they do contain glass, plastics and metals that can be recovered and reused. Like household hazardous waste, these products may also contain substances that can harm human health and the environment. The last place these items should go is in the trash.

Many organizations and businesses now provide electronics recycling services across the metro area. Many local governments also host one-day electronics collection events throughout the year. This new industry is creating local jobs and supports the community when certain items are donated for reuse. Almost all electronics recycling has a fee attached to cover the associated costs: proper recycling and disposal methods, trucking, packing materials, labor and insurance.

The following businesses accept electronics for recycling. Electronics recyclers generally do not accept small or large appliances. Call first to determine fees and items accepted.
