Electronics
Recycling

 

In an effort to make electronics recycling easy and convenient, Union County has worked to establish municipal drop off locations.  Currently 18 towns have established sites for residents to locally recycle their covered electronics (Covered Electronics Include:   Computers, Fax Machines, Monitors, Printers and Televisions).

The list of municipal drop off sites along, with site locations and hours of operation are listed below. 

Residents can also recycle electronics at several commercial establishments including:
