Do not place televisions and old computers at the curb for collection.

Computers, televisions, cell phones and other electronic devices contain many valuable components that can and must be recycled. In fact, many electronics are banned from the landfill because they contain rare heavy metals. Electronic items are accepted at the City of Madison drop off sites for recycling. Some require fees.

In the past, many people looked to donate their old computers to schools, charities or non-profit organizations. Unfortunately most of these organizations no longer accept used computers.

If you would like to donate an old computer, please call first to see if the organization of your choice will accept your machine.
