Where with the old, when it’s in with the new?
How to recycle old electronics.
If you’ve been taking advantage of all the deals for technology right now, you probably have a few old computers or TVs you need to get rid of. When they’re not working and you can’t donate them, avoid throwing electronic waste away and consider recycling them instead!
Just like purchasing the right electronics can be overwhelming, proper disposal can be as well. For a majority of your electronic waste disposal needs, Metro Hazardous Waste Drop-Off in Bondurant can provide you with answers.
All computers and computer related equipment is accepted including monitors, printers, keyboards, a mouse, scanners, and even laptops free of charge. The computers are then reused, de-manufactured, or recycled through Goodwill’s Dell Reconnect Program.
Metro Hazardous Waste Drop-Off will also take stereos, VCRs, DVD players, satellite receivers, cable boxes, fax machines, copiers, home phones, gaming systems, and speakers. The rate for these and other electronics is $.50 per pound. The items are taken to ATEC Recycling, a company that processes electronics that can no longer be used.
Knowing where it should go makes you a waste authority! If you’re still in need of more electronics recycling options, check out this handy list.
