Frequent Questions

Where do I recycle used electronics in my community?

To find reuse and recycling opportunities in your area, consult the EPA website on Electronics Donation and Recycling. If you do not find any collection sites listed for your area, please contact your local government's recycling and/or household hazardous waste program.

EPA encourages use of electronics recyclers certified to standards that require safe handling of used electronics and adherence to high environmental standards. Currently two accredited certification standards exist: the Responsible Recycling (R2) Standard for Electronics Recyclers and the e-Stewards® standards. Visit the eCycling Certification page for more information. To attain a list of R2 and e-Stewards certified recyclers, contact R2 Solutions and e-Stewards respectively.
