Mid Michigan Waste Authority offers free electronics recycling as part of its annual household special waste collection season. The 2018 programs runs from May to September, with Tech Tuesday drop-off days on the first Tuesday of each month from 9 am to 1 pm. Electronics can also be dropped off at MMWA’s “All in One” events, set for May 22, June 23, July 25, August 25 and September 27. Please see the full 2018 Household Special Waste program schedule below.
Residents wishing to recycle their televisions, 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, and misc cables and cords can bring them to MMWA’s 2018 Tech Tuesday drop-off day events.
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.
