E-Waste

What should be done with old electronic products? Computer monitors, televisions and other electronic equipment should NOT be disposed of with your garbage, recycling, or organics.  Working TVs, monitors, computers and other consumer electronics can be sold or donated thereby prolonging their useful life.  Nonfunctioning TVs and computer monitors should be recycled by an organization equipped to handle them.

Note: To ensure the health of our environment, please do some research before having E-Waste picked up from your residence or business and also before dropping it off at a non-CVSan sponsored collection event.  Most E-Waste materials have special collection, handling and recycling procedures and, by law, many are banned from garbage and the landfill.  Please visit www.e-stewards.org to confirm the organization taking your E-Waste is environmentally responsible.
