Electronic Waste Guidelines

Electronic Waste Guidelines

The State of NJ defines electronic waste (e-waste) as all computers, monitors, laptops, portable computers, desktop printers, fax machines and televisions.  The CCIA goes above and beyond what is acceptable as defined by the state by providing collection centers for other electronics and peripherals. 

Residents who wait to bring their electronics to one of the Household Hazardous Waste Events will be happy to know that they can drop off their e-waste throughout the year to their local public works and municipal “convenience” or “drop off” centers. 

The following electronics are accepted:  computer monitors, computer towers, laptops, desktop printers, fax machines, TVS including projection, wooden console, tube, flat screen, items must be larger than 4”, cell phones, copiers, printers, VCRs, DVD players, radios, computer keyboards, mouse, speakers, networking peripherals, boxes, cables, battery backup systems, stereos (not wooden consoles). 

The CCIA recommends contacting your municipal recycling coordinator or center for specific details prior to your visit.
