The Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County can recycle many of the electronic items that have been sitting in your attic along with those lava lamps and leisure suits, as well as any you’ve gathered in the ensuing years.
Accepted items include audio/visual equipment such as VCRs, and stereos; cellphones and rechargeable batteries; computer central processing units (CPUs) and monitors; laptops; accessories such as keyboards, mouse devices, printers and scanners; televisions; telephones and FAX machines; and even holiday lights.
To recycle items, don’t leave them at the curb; instead take them to one of the authority’s seven recycling Centers. Large quantities might require special disposal; call ahead.
The authority will sort the items and a private contractor will haul them off. Any useful components are processed for reuse; the rest is shredded, with the materials separated by type and recycled into new products.
