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 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, are banned from garbage and the landfill. Please visit www.e-stewards.org to confirm that the organization taking your E-Waste is environmentally responsible.
E-Waste options for Castro Valley Sanitary District (CVSan) residents include:
