Electronic waste (e-waste) is almost anything with a plug or battery including computers, printers, televisions, and cell phones. E-waste is not smoke detectors, batteries, or mercury bulbs. Other materials that will not be accepted at the event include refrigerators, large appliances, A/C units, thermostats, smoke/CO2 detectors, batteries, light bulbs, or any items with hazardous chemicals.

The E-Waste Collection Event is free and open for those interested in recycling personal e-waste. Attendees are asked to remain in their vehicles while staff help with collection. E-waste from businesses will not be accepted but can be recycled for a fee at the Pitkin County Landfill during operating hours. 

Space for collection is limited. Staff will begin accepting e-waste materials at 9 a.m. When the containers fill, the event will end.
