E-Cycle Wisconsin

Why is it important to recycle electronics?

Electronics contain valuable, reusable materials like gold, steel, silver, copper and glass. They also contain harmful materials like lead, mercury, cadmium and chemical flame retardants. Recycling and reusing electronics protects the environment, conserves valuable raw materials and preserves landfill space*.

What happens when I recycle my electronics?

Electronics recyclers break down your electronics, reuse or recycle safe materials and properly manage hazardous materials. Recyclers must comply with state and federal regulations to ensure environmental safety.

Where can I e-cycle?
