Consumer electronics contain many valuable or hazardous components that often can be recycled. The Electronic Waste Management Act made e-waste a mandated recyclable in 2011. The act prohibits e-waste from being placed in residential garbage and ending up in landfills. Some electronics retailers will allow customers to drop off certain types of electronics, even if they didn't buy it from the store (i.e., Best Buy and Staples). You should call ahead to ensure they take certain electronics. Do not leave at RCE dumpsters!
You can recycle Compact Fluorescent Lights (CFLs) and rechargeable batteries at retailers such as Home Depot.
Middlesex County no longer offers the electronics recycling program and instead directs consumers to stores or township programs.
