FREE Electronics Recycling for City of Milwaukee Residents 

Wisconsin's new electronics recycling law bans certain electronic items from landfills, such as TVs, computers, printers and fax machines.  It also creates a state wide recycling program called E-Cycle Wisconsin.  City of Milwaukee residents may recycle electronics through the E-Cycle program for FREE at City Self-Help Centers located at 6660 N Industrial Rd. and 3879 W Lincoln Ave.  The E-Cycle program is the state's first comprehensive system in Wisconsin for recycling electronics from households and K-12 public schools.  Under the new program, manufacturers will bear the primary financial responsibility for the recycling of banned electronics.  For more information, including a full list of banned items, visit the DPW's website or call (414) 286-CITY (2489).
