Recycling Open 24/7

E-Waste Collection

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-wasteE-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:

Computers, keyboards, printers, laptops, tablets, cell phones

Telephones, LCD & plasma TVs & monitors, cassette players

DVD/CD players, VCRs

No CDS, floppy disks, flash drives or VCR tapes, please.

*FEES will apply for

CRT computer monitors: $15/each;

CRT based televisions: $20/each;

Console and Rear Projection TVs: $20/each

*Fees are charged because these products contain lead and

 other hazardous materials and require special handling.

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.
