E-Cycle Washington, Washington now has a free, convenient and environmentally responsible recycling program for computers, monitors, laptops and televisions.
Many electronics, especially TVs and computers, contain toxic materials such as lead, cadmium and mercury. Reusing and recycling electronics keeps these toxic materials out of our landfills and incinerators and also recovers valuable resources. The electronic equipment this program collects will be taken apart and separated into materials such as glass, plastic, metal and toxic chemicals. All recycling will follow performance standards set up by the Department of Ecology.
Households, small businesses, schools and school districts, small governments, special purpose districts, and charities can recycle electronic products free of charge in this program.
Call 1-800-RECYCLE or visit the 1800-recycle website to find electronic product recycling services in your area.
