The Cass County Sustainability Committee will hold periodic E-Waste Collection Events in the area.
We currently have one collection event scheduled annually. Please consult www.recyclespot.org for information on possible e-waste disposal sites and dates in the metropolitan area.
Many items are accepted for free; others require a small fee to be accepted. Please check our calendar and our News & Events page for information on any upcoming events.
E-Waste recycling events will take your electronics for safe destruction and recycling. A fee will apply to all CRT Monitors and CRT Televisions; this is due to the hazardous nature of some components in these items. All other items are absolutely FREE to recycle! Bring us your:
Stereos, televisions and VCRs
Computers, monitors, keyboards, mice, drives and parts
Fax machines, printers and scanners
Cell phones, pagers, home phones and PDAs
Game consoles, hand-held games, joysticks and controllers
No CDS, floppy disks, flash drives or VCR tapes, please.
No materials are sent overseas. This article in Popular Science highlights the reason why that’s so important (and why it’s important to use a recycling company that doesn’t ship it out). All are safely destroyed and recycled. Save landfill space and protect our environment while cleaning out your old junk electronics!
Applicable fees must be paid for by cash or check. Please leave original packaging at home.
This recycling program is a partnership between the Cass County Sustainability Committee and area recyclers with grant funding provided by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and the Mid-America Regional Council Solid Waste Management District.
