Recycling Tip for Better Results: Electronics (E-waste) and Large Appliances

During the holiday season you may have replaced some of your outdated appliances or broken electronics, but where do they go now? Rather than pile them in your basement, there are local outlets for proper disposal. It’s important to remember that electronic waste and appliances should not be landfilled or recycled in the curbside cart system; they need to be handled differently during disposal.  

Pro tip: Before replacing electronics or appliances, ask yourself if you need the upgrade or if the item can simply be repaired. YouTube and other online tutorials have step-by-step videos that might make a repair easier than you think!
