Electronics recycling

To drop off electronics for recycling, pull up the window and present your ID. Unload your items in the marked boxes. Follow the signs to exit through the back gate.

The city’s Electronics Recycling Center accepts residential electronic waste Monday through Saturday. The Center does not accept items from businesses, including home businesses, or nonprofit organizations such as churches and schools. This service is for Fayette County residents only.
