Electronics Recycled

Electronic Waste Recycling

  • As of July 1, 2011, the State of North Carolina has banned all computer equipment and televisions from disposal in landfills.
  • Electronics cannot be placed in curbside carts as they will damage our sorting machinery, but we offer multiple sites for residents to drop them off at no charge. 
  • Electronics eligible for recycling include CD,VHS, DVD and DVR players, computer equipment, connectors, cables and wiring, digital cameras, electronic games and toys, fax machines, old cell phones, small appliances (vacuum cleaners, blenders, fans, microwaves, etc.), stereo equipment and televisions.

Household Hazardous Waste

  • Certain household wastes are not accepted in your curbside cart, because they can be hazardous to our environment and collection workers. The City has established a Household Hazardous Waste program to provide residents the opportunity to properly dispose of these wastes at our facility on E. MLK Jr. Drive for free.
