Computer and Electronics Recycling

The environmental management of computers and other electronics continues to be a hot topic in Virginia. The PC's rapid rate of obsolescence and environmentally unfriendly components can often make refurbishing, recycling and disposal difficult. This problem is compounded when you consider that millions of obsolete computers and other electronic components are currently being replaced by newer, faster units. 

The ultimate solution to computer and electronics recycling will come through source reduction and product stewardship such as environmentally friendly design and manufacturers taking responsibility for their product from cradle to grave. However, until these measures are in place, a number of organizations are available to help alleviate the burden of disposal. 

If you have computers or other electronic equipment to recycle, please consult the following list of firms and organizations that have been identified as currently serving the computer and electronics recycling needs of Virginia localities.

A listing of current Virginia localities with experience conducting electronics product recycling collections is available.  Contact your local Recycling Program managers or local government web page for electronics recycling in your jurisdiction.
