Electronic Waste

Electronic waste (e-waste) is any electronic equipment in your home that no longer works and cannot be repaired. E-waste is not collected through curbside pickup and should not be thrown in the garbage because these items contain hazardous materials and often have recyclable parts.

Examples of e-waste include:

  • Televisions
  • Computers and monitors
  • VCRs
