television and boomboxWhat is electronic e-waste?
E-waste is an informal name for electronic products nearing the end of their “useful life.” E-waste is anything with a circuit board. Look for products with digital displays & programmable features. Examples include TVs, office equipment, kitchen appliances, household & bath appliances, computer equipment and consumer electronics.

Why should waste electronics be recycled?
Electronic devices contain a variety of materials, including metals that can be recovered for recycling. Recycling your waste electronics saves resources because new metals don't have to be mined.

In addition, electronic devices contain high enough levels of certain materials, such as lead, that render them hazardous waste when disposed. Hazardous wastes cannot be disposed of in the garbage.

1. Organizations accepting electronics for reuse: for residents and businesses.
If your item is working and can be reused, consider donation. In addition to thrift shops, the following is a sampling where electronics are accepted for repair and reuse.

Computer Recycling Center
3227 Santa Rosa Avenue, Santa Rosa
(707) 570-1600 / (888) 887-3372

2. Drop-off recycling options: for residents and businesses
Use the “What would you like to recycle?” search function at the top of this web page. Choose the topic “Electronics.”

3. Curbside recycling:
Curbside recycling for household electronic devices is available in the blue single-stream recycling cart throughout Sonoma County.

Household electronic devices cannot be larger than 2 feet in any dimension such as home printers, cell phones, answering machines, radios & digital appliances (no glass), power strips, etc.

How to prepare: No TVs, computer monitors or other electronic devices with screens. Remove batteries prior to recycling. Remove cords and dispose of in the garbage or drop-off for recycling.

3. Bulky item pickup: for residents Bulky item collection means that certain items such as mattresses, appliances, furniture and electronics that cannot fit into your garbage can or that need special handling will be picked up by appointment by your garbage company. For details, visit bulky item collection or contact your garbage company
