Electronics

Why recycle electronics (e-waste)?
  1. Most electronics contain chemicals and other materials that are hazardous to the environment.
  2. Your trash hauler may not accept electronics at the curb, and in some states it is illegal to throw them in with your regular trash.
  3. Throwing away items with personal information (cell phones, computers, iPads, etc.) can leave you susceptible to identity theft.
  4. Recycling creates more jobs than throwing things in the trash. Workers will take the items apart and sort the pieces by material. Then, the materials will need to be shipped and processed. This requires more workers than hauling to a landfill for burial.
  5. Many of the materials in electronics can be reused, reducing our need to dig for ores and other materials in the ground, disrupting that environment. 
Our Trumbull County Collection Facility accepts all kinds of electronics for recycling, including TVs (limit 2/day), desktop computers, laptops, monitors, keyboards and peripherals, printers, modems, tablets, e-readers, satellite TV equipment, networking equipment, cables, cell phones, video game systems, etc.

If you are unsure if we will accept what you have, please contact us! 

Some electronics can be recycled through local e-waste companies and at retail locations. Best Buy and Staples allow customers to drop-off some items in store for free. 

***Due to COVID-19, many stores have suspended their e-waste collection. Please call your local retail store to verify their current ability to accept e-waste.

Appliances

Our Trumbull County Collection Facility can accept Freon-bearing appliances like dehumidifiers, freezers, air conditioners, and refrigerators. In addition, we can accept washing machines, clothes dryers, hot water heaters, microwaves, ovens, stoves, furnaces, and other items made primarily of metal.
You can also many of these items a number of local scrap metal dealers or appliance salvage companies that may be closer to where you live.
