Santa Barbara County encouraging recycling of e-waste

E-Waste Removal Santa Rosa (707) 922-5654 Electronics Recycling

The Santa Barbara County Public Works Department is encouraging North County residents to bring their old and unwanted electronics to the Santa Ynez Valley Recycling and Transfer Station.

Items such as televisions, computers, DVD players, cellphones, stereos, microwaves and more can be dropped off at the site free of charge from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. The facility is located at 4004 Foxen Canyon Road in Los Olivos.

Last year, the county collected more than 548, 000 pounds of electronics to be recycled between its two facilities. It also operates a South County electronic waste recycling facility in Santa Barbara, according to a spokesman.

Recycled electronics are processed domestically by a certified recycler to ensure the safe and proper handling of the materials. Recyclers in the United States must adhere to strict regulations that protect workers' health and the environment. Because old electronics contain hazardous materials - such as lead and mercury - it is important they be processed safely, according to the spokesman.

He also said the county's recycler employs the highest safeguards to protect personal data that may be left on old devices, which is achieved through the use of a sophisticated surveillance system to prevent theft and the operation of a 100-percent guaranteed data destruction program that utilizes strict Department of Defense standards.
