Free Electronic Recycling Jan 2009

Starting January 2009 consumers will be able to recycle most electronics for free at select locations. Some electronic examples are*:

- TV
- Computers
- Computer Monitors
- Portable or Laptop computers

*Note: Printers, mice, and keyboards are NOT included in this program.

This is such great news! This is one more step in the right direction to keep harmful chemicals from leaching into our soil and water, such as lead, cadmium and mercury. The electronics will be taken apart and separated (ex: glass, plastic, metal, and toxic chemicals). All of the recycling will follow the standards setup by the Department of Ecology.

To find a location that is accepting electronics to recycle or donate, go to or call 1-800-RECYCLE.
