Worried about data safety?
The Vermont Departent of Environmental Conservation says the following about data safety: DATA SECURITY: Are you worried about leaving data on your computer when recycling it? It’s up to you to remove any sensitive data from your computer before taking it to an E-Cycles collection location.
All electronic waste (e-waste) is banned from Vermont landfills and incinerators. E-waste includes computers, TVs, and computer peripherals such as keyboards and monitors. In 2011, Vermont joined 24 other states in addressing the growing challenges of disposing of such waste by requiring manufacturers that sell electronic devices in VT to cover the costs of recycling them. As a result, there is no disposal fee to Vermont residents, small businesses, schools, and charities for disposal of covered devices at state certified permanent collection sites.
CVSWMD residents can take e-waste at our Additional Recyclables Collection Center in Barre. (Click here for hours and directions).
To find the e-waste collector nearest you, please refer to the State of Vermont's list of registered e-waste collection sites and general e-waste information.
