At the AEC Dropoff: 

The AEC is pleased to be able to accept most computer components for recycling. We can take most anything computer or electronics-related, except mercury-containing devices (i.e. thermostats), and we charge a $15 recycling fee for computer monitors and a $0.50 per pound recycling fee for televisions. We cannot accept DLP (rear projection) televisions or televisions in "wood" casings. For a $25 fee, Best Buy stores will recycle your TVs that are 32" or smaller, flat panel TVs that are 50" or smaller, and portable TVs. Advanced Technology Recycling and Protec Recycling accept televisions and computer monitors for a fee, as well. You can search http://www.thermostat-recycle.org/ for a thermostat recycling location near you.

 

FAQ: 

- What types of electronics can I drop off for recycling?  Computer towers, disk drives, keyboard, mouse, cables, PDAs, printers, gaming systems, etc., etc.  Just about anything except mercury-containing devices (i.e. thermostats).
