Computers, Monitors, Cell Phones and Electronic Waste

 Computers, Monitors, Cell Phones and Electronic WasteElectronics are the fastest growing portion of the municipal waste stream in the country. These items include televisions, radios, stereos, cell phones - just about anything with a circuit board, which is just about anything these days. Electronic waste or "e-waste" is banned from being disposed in the trash in California because the devices contain toxic heavy metals including lead, cadmium and mercury. According to US EPA, at least 40 percent of the lead in landfills comes from discarded electronics. Almost anything considered "electronic" can harm human health and the environment if improperly disposed, including:
  • Televisions
  • Computers
  • Computer monitors
  • Printers and other peripherals
  • Fax machines
  • Radios/ stereos/ receivers
  • VCRs/ DVD players
  • Cell phones/ PDAs/ iPods
  • Telephones
  • Telephones/ answering machines
  • Electrical Cords
  • Holiday Lights

There is NO COST for San Joaquin County residents to drop off these materials at County Facilities for proper disposal.

PLEASE DO NOT PLACE THESE ITEMS IN THE GARBAGE!
