Johnson County residents wanting to recycle their old household computers and other electronics are able to do so through the City's eWaste Recycling Program. This program is available to all Johnson County residents free of charge.
What is eWaste?
Electronics waste (eWaste) includes all types of obsolete, unused, or unwanted electronic equipment. Personal computers (PCs), consisting of central processing units (CPUs), monitors or cathode ray tubes (CRTs), keyboards, and miscellaneous peripheral items, comprise the largest volume of eWaste. eWaste also includes a wide variety of other items such as televisions, VCRs, stereos, radios, cell phones, and DVD players.
Why bother recycling?
eWaste management is one of the most important emerging issues in the solid waste industry. At present time, eWaste is not considered hazardous waste and may be disposed of with regular trash. However, these items contain large amounts of lead and other non-renewable resources. The City's eWaste Recycling Program provides a means for Johnson County residents to offer these items for recycling.
How do I participate in the City’s eWaste Recycling Program?
Johnson County residents can call 971-9311 (a day in advance) to schedule an appointment to bring in their e-waste items, free of charge. The household hazardous waste facility is located at 1420 S Robinson. Residents will be asked for a photo ID and must complete a waiver accepting the program requirements. eWaste is not accepted on 2nd Saturday HHW collection events.
The following items are accepted free of charge:
