Electronics: Recycle the Old Stuff

Did you get a new cell phone, television or other electronic toys from Santa?  Be sure to dispose of your old electronic devices properly.  Many electronics, especially TVs and computers, contain toxic materials and are banned from the garbage, yard waste and curbside recycling containers.

Seattle residents have plenty of convenient and easy options for recycling their unwanted electronics.

Contact www.ecyclewashington.org or 1-800-RECYCLE for free computer and TV drop-off locations.

Also visit www.takeitbacknetwork.org for cell phone and fluorescent light bulb drop-off locations. Some charge a fee.

Seattle Public Utilities will pick up and recycle TVs, computers and other electronic items from your curb for a $20 fee. Call 206-684-3000 to request electronics collection.
