Why worry about old electronics?

They contain materials that can be hazardous to human health and the environment if they are not properly managed. For example:

  • Lead
  • Mercury
  • Hexavalent Chromium
  • Brominated Flame Retardants
  • PCBs
  • Plastics


These e-waste collections will be held in conjunction with the Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Collection Program.

Don’t miss this great opportunity!
