Passaic County 2017 Computers & Electronics Collection Events

Passaic County to Recycle Computers & Electronics 

(Wayne, NJ) - The Passaic County Office of Solid Waste & Recycling Programs will be conducting its next Computer & Electronics Recycling Collection Event on Friday, May 5 and Saturday, May 6, 2017 from 9 am to 2 pm, rain or shine at the Passaic County Para-Transit Facility, 1310 Route 23 North in Wayne (behind Ski Barn). 

Almost all types of computer and electronic equipment will be accepted at this 2-day event, including monitors, hard drives, printers, keyboards, modems, copier and fax machines, televisions, radios, VCRs and stereo systems, CD players, DVD players, cell phones and old telephone systems, according to Nina Seiden, Passaic County’s Solid Waste & Recycling Programs Manager. There is a total limit of 5 TV and/or computer monitors per household per event. The County’s program also accepts used inkjet and laser toner cartridges, unwanted VHS tapes, CDs, DVDs, CD-ROMS, video games, computer games, and floppy disks. 

“Passaic County continues to offer residents and businesses the opportunity to recycle their unwanted e-waste while complying with NJ state law.  TVs and computer equipment are prohibited from being thrown away as garbage. Instead, these items are made into other useful products, keeping them out of our diminishing landfill space and preventing a variety of toxins such as lead, mercury, and cadmium from entering our groundwater” Seiden said 

The event is free for residents. Businesses must pre-register. For further information, please call the Passaic County Office of Solid Waste & Recycling Programs at (973) 305-5738. Recycling services provided by Advanced Recovery of Newark, N.J. and Port Jervis, N.Y.
