 E-Waste Recycling

Accepted waste: Standard cell phones, smart phones, iPhones, select inkjet cartridges, laptops, notebooks, netbooks, iPads and tablets. Best practices for e-waste: Please restore your device to factory settings and remove any personal information prior to sending through this program. TerraCycle is not responsible for information on your devices; all information from electronics is removed, and hard drives will be removed and shredded. These items are not accepted: toner cartridges, chargers of any kind, cables, headphones/headsets, and laptop charging stations/ports.

What happens to the E-waste?

"Once collected, the electronic waste is shredded and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products. The metals are recovered in a smelting process. Click here to learn more about the recycling process."
