COSTSMonitors (all types, flat screen or glass tube) and TVs/Televisions (all types, all ages, flat screen or glass tube) have a cost to recycle. All other electronics are free to drop off.
$25 fee for screens under 21 inches (measured diagonally)
$35 fee for screens 21 inches or over (measured diagonally)
Accepted aerosol items (most household and food products) carry a $1 fee per item
Small propane tanks (large tanks like those used for grills are not accepted) carry a $3.50 fee per item
Why is there a fee on TVs and Monitors? TVs and monitors contain lead and/or mercury and must be processed as hazardous material, a more expensive process that makes the consumer-based fee a necessity. The fee is paid directly to the County's contracted electronics recycler - eWorks, a non-profit that employs people with developmental disabilities. You are helping a good cause and responsibly disposing of your used electronics!
