Electronic & Universal Waste Program
In 2008, you recycled over 13,000 pounds of household batteries and almost 500 tons (nearly one million pounds!) of TVs, computers, and other electronic waste with Recology Yuba-Sutter. Not only can electronic waste recycling be good for the environment, it can also be good for the economy. Recycling electronic waste can increase production efficiency and reduce costs associated with purchasing raw materials and waste management.
Examples of prohibited wastes:
- Computers, computer peripherals, telephones, answering machines, radios, stereo equipment, tape players/recorders, phonographs, VCRs, CD players/recorders, calculators, and microwave ovens.
Mercury Containing Waste
- Fluorescent tubes, high-intensity lights, sodium vapor lamps, metal halide lamps, and mercury thermostats and switches.
- Including carbon-zinc and alkaline, rechargeable, NiCad, lithium, and mercury button batteries. This includes AA, AAA, C, and D batteries.
Electronics are not the only common household materials that cannot be disposed of in the trash! Paint, cleaners and poisons are several examples of Household Hazardous Waste (HHW). For more information on HHW, and how to dispose of it properly, please visit our Household Hazardous Waste
