How To Recycle Electronics

Under the NYS Electronic Equipment Recycling and Reuse Act, manufacturers are required to provide consumers a free and convenient opportunity to recycle their equipment or one piece of covered electronic equipment (CEE) from another manufacturer with the purchase of the same type.

Common electronics that must be recycled are computers, printers, monitors, televisions and tablets.

Depending on a specific manufacturer’s acceptance program, CEE recycling opportunities may include mail back programs and local collection events.

Permanent collection locations in Delaware County include Delaware Co. Solid Waste Management Center, 32230 State Highway 10, Walton, 607-746-2128; Delaware Empire Computer, 8 Bridge Street, Sidney, 607-563-9000; Delaware Video Entertainment Plus, 89 Main Street, Sidney, 607-563- 1424.

Note: these electronic waste collection sites may not represent a drop-off acceptance location for your particular type of equipment, so call ahead.
