discarded computer equipment

Electronic waste

Consumer electronics such as TVs, computer equipment, and DVD players contain toxic metals and chemicals. According to the EPA, Americans own nearly 3 billion electronic products.

These devices are safe to use every day in your house, but when thrown away, can release heavy metals and other chemicals under certain conditions in the environment. Protect yourself and the environment: keep them out of the trash.

Residents can take advantage of the growing number of recycling options for household electronics—some are free, while some charge a fee.

Yellow Medicine

Recycle anything with a circuit board

In Minnesota, by law, you must recycle televisions and computer monitors.They can't go into the trash.

Also, almost anything electronic can be recycled. Talk to your local recycler. You can help by keeping anything with a circuit board out of the trash:

  • Televisions
  • Monitors
  • Cell phones
  • Laptops
  • Computers
  • DVD and VCR players
  • Fax machines
  • PDAs

Prevent e-waste

  • Use your products for as long as possible. You can use your analog TV longer by purchasing a converter box, or receiving TV through satellite or cable.
  • Donate your TV to a thrift store that accepts electronics, or give it away through online services such as Craigslist, Freecycle, or Twin Cities Free Market.

Retail programs

Some retail stores provide recycling services that are convenient for consumers that want to get rid of various broken or unwanted electronics, particularly cell phones and rechargeable batteries.

  • Best Buy provides free and easy recycling for any brand of cell phone, printer ink cartridge, and rechargeable battery at any of their 600-plus retail locations nationwide—look for the special display in the front entrance.
  • Through the Call2Recycle program, retailers including Batteries Plus, Target, and Radio Shack offer drop-offs for all brands of unwanted cell phones and accessories. Go online to find participating locations, or call 1-877-2-RECYCLE. Useable phones are refurbished for donation, and the rest is recycled with a portion of the proceeds given to charity.
  • Sprint Project Connect offers free drop-off of all brands of wireless phones at Sprint Stores and participating Easter Seals locations nationwide. Donations are either recycled or resold, with a portion of the net proceeds benefiting Easter Seals and the National Organization on Disability (NOD).
  • Staples office supply stores offer free drop-off recycling services for used cell phones, PDAs, pagers, and rechargeable batteries. The chain has partnered with CollectiveGood to refurbish useable devices and recycle those that are broken. Use the Staples online Store locator to see if there's another store near you.
  • HTML Content Phones: Hopeline (Verizon) External Link
    Free mailback and in-store dropoff for no-longer-used wireless phones, batteries and accessories in any condition, from any service provider. With the funds raised from the sale of the refurbished phones, Verizon Wireless will purchase wireless phones and donate airtime to victims of domestic violence through human services and law enforcement agencies. Phones that can’t be reused are recycled responsibly under our zero landfill policy.

Manufacturer recycling programs

Several major manufacturers of computers and electronics are offering consumers recycling and reuse alternatives for their products. This is most common for old PCs and computer peripherals (monitors, keyboards, mice, etc.). Find out more.

Options for cell phones

Cell phones seem to be everywhere these days, and millions are trashed each year in the U.S. But unwanted phones have value—keep them out of the trash!

Learn about the growing number of national programs for collecting unwanted cell phones and putting them to use—donation and reuse, resale, and recycling. Most programs are free to the consumer and make it easy, including free drop-off sites and postage-paid mailers.Find out more.
