Recycling Computers and ElectronicsWelcome to ValleyNet : Recycling Computers and Electronics
It's important to keep electronics and computers out of the waste stream; not only do they add unecessary waste to landfills, but many of their parts can be re-used or recycled, which makes it possible to reduce the need for new raw materials. |
The Greater Upper Valley Solid Waste District holds regular computer recycling collections; find out about their recycling events and hazardous waste collections by visiting their website. Visit their Computer Recycling Information page for more details on recycling computers and electronics.
