Your E-Waste is too valuable to just toss away!
Bring your e-waste to the Utility Exploration Center and recycle it for FREE
Electronic waste (or e-waste) is made mainly from plastic, glass and steel, but it also contains small quantities of gold, silver, cadmium and other valuable metals. These materials can be safely separated and recycled into new electronic items and avoid landfills.
E-waste dropped off at the Exploration Center is recycled by SIMS Recycling Solutions, an international recycling company with a sorting and shredding facility in Roseville. Please review the list of approved materials before you come in. Due to space limitations, we can no longer accept television sets. Watch for free drop-off events or call us at 916.746.1550 for other disposal options.
