Recycling and Disposing of Electronic Waste

How do I get rid of electronic goods that are out of order or broken; e,g, keyboard, motherboard of computer, headphones, mobiles, etc? Since they are not biodegradable, I do not want to dispose of as normal waste.

Please help, thanks.

Check with your town hall to see if there is electronics recycling available for residents. Our county has a couple of days a year for this where residents can bring this material to the high school for collection.

If you have a county solid waste division they should be able to help.

Local areas have e-waste collection days and sites. Goodwill accepts these, too, for recycling

If you live near a Best Buy they will recycle for you. You pay them $10 but then they give you back a $10 gift card, so you really haven't 'paid' to have your stuff recycled. I'd call first to make sure the stores in your area do offer this program.

Here is Saskatchewan, Sarcan, which recycles bottles, collects these items. Check you local recycling site. Your city or town office should be able to tell you where you can take these items.

Check earth911.org. Not sure if it just covers the U.S. or what.
