Proper Disposal of Electronics

Electronics (like your TV, computer, or electronic kid's toys) and other Household Appliances (toasters, vacuums, and blenders) are all considered E-waste. These items contain heavy metals and other toxic compounds. They also contain valuable limited resources like lithium from batteries. All e-waste should be properly recycled at the end of life.

Electronics and Household Appliances should never be placed in your curbside recycling cart.
