Electronic Waste (E-Waste) is the term used to describe discarded electronic equipment. Television, microwaves, computers, monitors, keyboards, printers, VCR’s, fax machines, electronic games and cell phones fall in this category. These products contain Cathode Ray Tubes (CRTs) which are made of lead and cannot be disposed of in your trash or recycling carts.
E-Waste is acceptable for bulky item pick up (see rules above).
Additionally, the County of Los Angeles now accepts E-Waste at the Household Hazardous Waste Round-Ups held throughout the year. Residential E-Waste can be brought to these round-ups for proper disposal at NO charge. For more information on dates and locations, please call the Los Angeles County Sanitation District at (800) 238-0173 or visit their website at www.www.lacsd.org. You may also call the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works at (888) CLEAN-LA (253-2652) or visit their website at www.888CleanLA.com.
E-Waste Collection Event
We will conduct an annual E-Waste event at a school or park in the community to provide you an additional opportunity to dispose of unwanted E-Waste. The specific date is yet to be determined. More information will be provided in the quarterly newsletter or billing statement.
