Computer & TV Recycling

Remember back in the “Recycling Basics” blog post when we talked about the benefits of recycling your paper, plastic, aluminum and glass? Well don’t forget about other items that can be recycled at specific drop off points throughout the city. Items such as your computer, television and other electronics are recyclable items that don’t want to end up in the landfill.

By recycling these items, you are:

  • reducing the release of greenhouse gases
  • saving energy because less energy is being used to manufacture new products
  • protecting trees and prevents destruction of natural habitats
  • conserving natural resources such as wood, water and minerals
  • curbing landfill growth by keeping 70 tons of waste a year from being deposited

Both Hamilton County and Butler County are offering computer and TV recycling drop offs to their residents. Read below for more details, or visit their websites.
