Electronics Recycling FAQ

Can I drop off my electronics at your local facility?

Deliveries to our local processing facility are by appointment only. If you are a community member interested in recycling your electronics, learn about upcoming local collection events or join our email list to learn about upcoming public events!

Where do you send the items?

We are committed to environmental stewardship and ship material only to R2/RIOS or E-Steward facilities. By shipping to R2/RIOS and E-Steward facilities, we are able to ensure high environmental stewardship standards are met through the entire end-of-life recycling process.

Why should I recycle my electronics?

Electronics are one of the fastest-growing segments of waste in municipal landfills in the United States. Recycling your electronics saves energy, reduces pollution and greenhouse gases, and saves resources by extracting fewer raw materials. Recycling with 406 Recycling also ensures any data on outdated or unwanted electronic devices is responsibly destroyed.
