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.
To make it more convenient for residents and businesses to dispose of their working/non-working electronics, Zero Waste Sonoma is partnering with Conservation Corp North Bay to conduct free electronics collection events.
No appointment necessary for these events. All events held in the parking lot. All events are 9A - 5P.
* The TV screens of certain exercise equipment (e.g., NordicTracks, elliptical, stationary bicycles, rowing machines, etc.) should be recycled as e-waste.
It is transported to a sustainably certified recycling facility in California where is it carefully dismantled into different components (metals, plastic, glass, etc.). This material then goes to manufacturing facilities to be reprocessed into new products.
