Other Recycling Options for Electronics

Most electronics can be recycled through the following companies: 

Working electronics can sometimes be sold to an electronics store such as Entertainmart or Gazelle or donated to Goodwill Industries, Salvation Army, or another secondhand store.

Cell Phones:

Cell phones can often be recycled through your phone service provider, or donated to Cell Phones for Soldiers

Computers:

All computer manufacturers are required to offer recycling options for equipment they produce. Instead of bringing computers to the landfill, citizens can recycle for free through the computer manufacturer.
