Computers and televisions are specifically targeted for recycling because of the high lead levels found in their cathode ray tubes (CRTs). CRTs are the video display components of televisions and computer monitors. Because they contain high levels of lead, cathode ray tubes in computers and televisions may pollute the environment if improperly disposed. Recycling, instead of landfilling, is the preferred method to handle e-scrap.
Electronic equipment from your home can be recycled. Examples of electronic equipment include: Computers, Televisions, VCRs, Fax machines, CD players, and Stereos.
You may bring these items to the Household Hazardous Waste Facility at the Volusia County Landfill. This free service is available to Volusia County residents.
For more information about disposing of electronic equipment, please contact Waste Pro at 407-774-0800 for additional information.
