In the U.S. we are focused on making sure our technology is cutting edge so why are so many of us still disposing of it the old way?

Every year, 9.5 million tons of electronics get thrown away every year in the U.S. and only 12.5% of e-waste is properly recycled. Don’t have your old cellphone, computer monitor, or microwave be the next to join the landfill party.

In Ontario County we try to make it easy for residents to make the smart choice.  If you’ve got outdated or broken electronics taking over your attic, basement or garage, make sure you PRE-REGISTER for our October 19th Electronic Waste Collection Event at the Casella Recycling Facility.

Space is limited so call 585-394-3977 x427 to reserve one of the 500 spots today.

For more information on recycling events check out our Events Page or head over to the E-Waste Materials page to learn more about the impacts of improperly disposed of electronics.
