Electronic Waste Recycling
Electronic waste "e-waste" is loosely applied to consumer and business electronic equipment that is near or at the end of its useful life. Electronic waste is of concern largely due to the toxicity of some of the substances, including lead, mercury, cadmium and a number of other substances found in electronics, if processed improperly.
Is your computer in working condition or near working condition and you simply don't want it anymore? Consider donating it to Computers for Classrooms, also featured on our Reuse page. This North Valley nonprofit refurbishes computers, monitors, television sets, accessories, printers, servers, etc. for low-income students.
The Tehama County/Red Bluff Landfill now accepts e-waste FREE of charge everyday! This is great news! If you have waste types other than e-waste, you will have to weigh through once for the e-waste and another time for the other waste, so as to not be charged.
