“RRRASOC continues to encourage electronic waste recycling to reduce the harmful effects that e-waste can have on the environment. When thrown out with household garbage, old electronics can contaminate air, soil and water because they contain hazardous substances. Through proper recycling, these hazardous substances, which are also valuable resources, are reprocessed and reused in an environmentally-responsible manner” said Michael Csapo, General Manager of the Resource Recovery and Recycling Authority of Southwest Oakland County.

Acceptable items include: desktop computers, laptops, computer related equipment, televisions, printers, fax machines, telephones, gaming systems, cameras, holiday light strings, microwave ovens, small appliances. Basically, it is most items with a plug. Items NOT accepted at e-waste events include large household appliances, air conditioners and dehumidifiers.
