Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is E-Waste and how can I recycle it?

The term "E-Waste" is loosely applied to consumer and business electronic equipment like computers, printers, cables, televisions, VCRs, copiers, fax machines, stereos, and electronic games that are no longer wanted. Certain components contain materials that cannot be recycled or make them hazardous. In particular, California law views unwanted picture tubes from televisions and monitors as a type of hazardous waste and they therefore must not be placed in with the regular trash.

With limited landfill space, reduce, reuse, and recycle what you can. Our E-Waste website below lists a variety of resources available in the County of Los Angeles for recycling e-waste.
