Mid Michigan Waste Authority offers free electronics recycling as part of its annual household special waste collection season.

The 2017 Tech Tuesday e-waste drop-off events will be held on the first Tuesday of the month, May through September, from 9 am to 1 pm at MMWA’s Community Resource Recycling Center, 2063 S Miller Rd, Saginaw. Residents may also drop off electronics at two “All in One” household special waste drop-off days on Thursday, August 24 from 3 pm to 7 pm and on Saturday, September 23 from 9 am to 1 pm. On those dates, MMWA will also be accepting paint and household hazardous waste materials like gasoline, oil, and other problem wastes.

Accepted items include televisions (all types except rear projection models), DVD players, VCRs, stereos, radios, camcorders, cameras, radios, gaming systems, monitors, computers, laptops, scanners, keyboards, mice, cell phones, pagers, two-way radios, telephones, broadband modules, hard drives, tablets, printers, fax machines, servers, optical drivers, cables and cords, and misc. parts. 

There is no charge to recycle these items, and no appointment is necessary. Residents do not need to get out of their vehicles to drop off their electronics; there is an on-site crew to unload all materials.

If you have questions about e-waste recycling, please call MMWA at (989) 781-9555.

Problem waste drop-offs are open to all Saginaw County residents, along with MMWA member residents from Village of Breckenridge, Bethany Twp and Wheeler Twp.

In addition to MMWA’s seasonal electronics recycling program, SVRC Industries offers year-round e-waste recycling at 919 Veterans Memorial Parkway in Saginaw. For more information and hours of operation, please call (989) 752-6176, ext 2118 or contact Eve Flynn at eflynn@svrcindustries.com.
