Electronics Recycling

e-RecyclingElectronic Waste commonly referred to as e-waste may contain both hazardous materials and valuable resources. Electronic waste may contain toxic materials, such as lead, mercury and hexavalent chromium that, if improperly handled, may be released into the environment and threaten our health. E-waste may also contain valuable resources that can be reused or recycled to conserve virgin resources.

In an effort to prevent these materials from entering landfills, the Monroe County Recycling and Green Community Program and the Habitat for Humanity Restore are partnering to offer the free collection of electronic waste on an ongoing basis. The Restore will be accepting computer systems, monitors, CPUs, printers, keyboards, peripherals, laptops and televisions (no console TVs). The Habitat for Humanity Restore is located at 840 LaPlaisance Road in Monroe. They will accept materials from 10 am until 5 pm, Tuesday through Saturday. For questions, please contact the Restore at 734-243-1108 or Dan Rock, Recycling and Green Community Coordinator at 734-240-7909.
