Electronic Items That Are Not Recyclable

Recyclables - Not

Electronics legislation has changed this year, the following items will no longer be taken at SWANCC events or permanent drop off locations.
▪ Calculators
▪ Cameras
▪ Microwaves
▪ Power tools/cords
▪ Shredders
▪ Stereo equipment
▪ Small home appliances (blenders, coffee makers, lamps, etc.)
▪ Typewriters

If these items aren't worthy of donation (see SWANCC's Reuse and Recycling Directory at for possible outlets), they can be thrown away in the garbage.  Metal scrap yards will take microwaves and often get picked up from households by alley scrappers when put out before garbage day.
