Electronics Collection

electronics collection.Over 650,000 kgs. of electronics and electrical items are in the County residential garbage each year. Help us keep electronic waste out of the landfill. Save your obsolete electronics for collection this September.

Watch for bags in your mail. Sealed bags must be out on Monday at 7 a.m. of your special collection week. Collection will occur during the week, not necessarily on your regular garbage day. Click here to determine your week.

Extra material must be in clear plastic bags and larger items can be placed at curbside. The County reserves the right to refuse collection if improperly set-out or over-weight items.
