I’ve had a broken tablet sitting in my hall closet for at least 8 years. Wondering where to recycle that broken printer that has been sitting in a closet for years? How about the old speakers in the garage? If you have been stuck for where to recycle electronics, I have the answer for you today.

Another Idea
Remember, most towns host hazardous waste, electronic recycling, paper shredding events. Mostly in the spring and fall. Just google your town or county, 2021, and the phrase electronic recycling. If you can’t find one that way call the town for more information.
