Everyday E-waste Recycling & Quarterly Events

E-waste Recycling

Electronics waste or e-waste is anything that has an electrical cord or runs on batteries. E-waste cannot be put in the 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. To read more about what items are considered e-waste and how they should be properly disposed, visit our page on E-waste.
