Electronic Waste Recycling
Like computers, other forms of electronic waste contain hazardous materials such as lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, and brominated flame retardants. These should not be thrown away with regular trash. Here are some companies you can work with to dispose of your electronics properly. Check our TTT Guide for more information and locations all around the area that reuse and/or recycle these items.
