Television Recycling Fee Changes Starting January 1, 2017

November 19, 2016 12:06 PM

Effective January 1, 2017, the Streets Division will increase the cost of recycling a television from $10 to $15 apiece. 

City of Madison residents and taxpayers are still required to bring televisions to one of the Streets Division drop-off sites for the City to recycle it.  Residents are reminded that they should not place televisions at the curb, or into their curbside collection carts.

The Streets Division drop-off sites are located at 1501 W. Badger Rd. and 4602 Sycamore Ave.  The sites are currently open from 8:30am to 4:30pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, and from 8:30am to 8:00pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Starting on Monday, December 5, 2016 the drop-off sites will transition to winter hours and will be open Monday to Friday 7:30am to 3:00pm.

The recycling fee is paid by obtaining an appliance sticker in advance of delivering the item to a drop-off site.  Stickers are can be purchased at any city of Madison public library, the Treasurer's Office in the City-County Building, or at either Streets Division office.  The Streets Division offices are open 7:30am to 4:00pm Monday to Friday.  The offices are located at 1501 W. Badger Rd. and 4602 Sycamore Ave.  Please note that the drop-off sites and the Streets Division offices have different hours.

More and more residents are jettisoning their bulky, antiquated cathode ray televisions (CRTs) in favor of new high definition sets.  Through October 2016, the Streets Division has recycled over 200 tons of televisions.  That is nearly equivalent to the weight of all the electronics that the Streets Division recycled in 2015.  We anticipate that a high volume of televisions in need of recycling will continue for at least the next five years. Increasing the television recycling fee to $15 will better cover recycling costs.

City of Madison residents or taxpayers that have a $10 sticker to recycle a television are encouraged to bring the TV in need of recycling to a drop-off site prior to the end of 2016.  After January 1, 2017, those with a $10 sticker for television recycling will need to obtain an additional $5 appliance sticker in order to meet the new $15 price.

All other appliance fees for the City of Madison will remain the same at this time. For a complete list of items requiring an additional fee, please visit our website: http://www.cityofmadison.com/streets/refuse/appliances.cfm. 

Televisions, and many other electronic items, are banned from the landfill, so everyone must recycle them.  For a complete list of all public and private registered E-Cycle vendors, and the list of electronics banned from landfills, visit the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources website: http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/ecycle/.
