E-Waste Collection

The Cass County Sustainability Committee will hold periodic E-Waste Collection Events in the area. Help protect our water and environment and save landfill space by properly disposing of your old cell phone, computer, television, and other electronics.

Our next event is scheduled for:

Saturday, May 13, 2023 8:00 a.m. — noon
Raymore-Peculiar Academy

21001 S. School Rd., Peculiar, MO

Please consult www.recyclespot.org for information on possible e-waste disposal sites and dates in the metropolitan area.

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!

The 2020 World Championship Ray-Pec Robotics Team “System Meltdown” FRC 2357 will be there to help unload your electronics. Donations to the team are gladly accepted.
