    Places To Get Rid Of Electronics & Other Items

    MMSD's Household Hazardous Waste Program does not accept all items. We're providing the following list, as a public service, of places where you can properly dispose certain items. You should check with your municipality to see if it offers disposal services for items not accepted at our hazardous waste collection facilities.

    Electronics

    Wisconsin's 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. There are many convenient electronics drop-off locations under the E-Cycle Wisconsin program. Visit the Wisconsin DNR’s E-Cycle webpage to search for a drop-off site nearest you.

    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.
