Other Recycling Programs
Various parts of popular electronic
devices may contain dangerous heavy metals, including lead,
silver, barium, cadmium, chromium and mercury.
CVWMA's electronics recycling program helps
citizens properly dispose of unwanted equipment instead of
landfilling them where they could cause soil, water or air
contamination. Click here for more
info. Equipment collected in
this program will be demanufactured for
recycling. Some components may be refurbished
for continued use.
CVWMA offers residents two
ways to recycle unwanted electronics:
Collection Events by Locations and
CVWMA and our member communities offer a variety
of opportunities to recycle unwanted electronics.
Saturday events are held periodically around the region.
Permanent collection points have also been established
in a few CVWMA localities; we
hope to offer more permanent collection points in the
future. Some items require a fee for
collection. Refer to the listing on
