The Cumberland County Improvement Authority (CCIA) strives to provide a safe and accessible way of disposing of electronic waste. The Authority goes above and beyond what is acceptable as defined by the state by providing collection centers for other electronics and peripherals. Authority staff work with municipal coordinators in the 14 municipalities to schedule, receive, sort, organize, wrap, and ship e-waste to a designated facility.
Residents who wait to bring their electronics to one of the Household Hazardous Waste events will be happy to know they can drop off their e-waste throughout the year at their local public works and municipal “convenience” or “drop off” centers. The Authority recommends contacting your municipal recycling coordinator or center for specific details prior to your visit.
The following electronics are accepted: computer monitors, computer towers, laptops, desktop printers, fax machines, TVs including projection, wooden console, tube, flat screen, cell phones, copiers, printers, VCRs, DVD players, radios, computer keyboards, mouse, speakers, networking peripherals, boxes, cables, battery backup systems, stereos (not wooden consoles).
