Electronic Waste Warning

If it plugs in, charges up, or takes batteries, it can't be disposed of in your trash because it could harm you or the environment. Find out about electronics regulations.



This section shows you how to recycle old electronic devices and related items like cables, DVDs and more.

Businesses tend to generate more electronic waste than households. Because of the volume of waste that businesses produce, there are some charges associated with the disposal of business related electronics.
