Mid Michigan Waste Authority offers free electronics recycling as part of its annual household special waste collection season. The 2018 program has ended. Please watch the MMWA website for dates and details about the 2019 program. The schedule will be announced by mid-April 2019.
Residents wishing to recycle their televisions, DVD players, VCRs, camcorders, gaming systems, monitors, computers, laptops, scanners, keyboards, mice, cell phones, pagers, telephones, broadband modules, hard drives, tablets, printers, fax machines, servers, optical drivers, and misc cables and cords can bring them to MMWA’s spring and summer electronics recycling events. Watch our website or call us at (989) 781-9555 after mid-April 2019 for details about the 2019 drop-off season.
Please note that the electronics recycling events are for television and computer-related electronics only. Do not bring things like vacuum cleaners, toasters, radios, satellite dishes, small appliances, etc.
While we encourage people to recycle their e-waste, most electronics can be placed curbside to be collected as trash. However, residents should be cautious about putting anything to the curb that may contain personal information, like hard drives. Items not contained in a can or a bag will be considered a bulky item, and households are allowed up to two bulky items per week.
