Electronics, Monitors & TVs
Disposal Ban:Beginning January 1, 2015, consumers may no longer dispose of certain types of electronic equipment in landfills, waste-to-energy facilities, in the trash, or at curbside for trash pickup.

Not only are manufacturers required to accept for recycling or reuse equipment for which they are the manufacturer (Manufacturer Take Back Program), but they are also required to accept one piece of electronic waste of any manufacturer's brand if offered by a consumer with the purchase of covered electronic equipment of the same type by a consumer—meaning, you may be able to use your new product's manufacturer's recycling program for your old equipment as well, regardless of your old equipment's brand.


  • Return to Staples: Staples offers trade-in options for some items and accepts many more electronic items for recycling - please check Staples' website for a complete list and exceptions.
  • MONITORS AND TV'S: Cathode ray tubes, the primary component in computer monitors and televisions, contain lead that can potentially contaminate land, air and water resources. They should not be thrown out with the trash. Bring to Pleasantville Recycling Center on the 1st Saturday of each month, 1 Village Lane.
  • CELL PHONES: It is illegal to throw cell phones in the garbage. Cell phone dropoff locations are located at Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Staples, Best Buy and Home Depot stores.
  • ELECTRONICS & ACCESSORIES: Accepted at the Permanent Household Recovery Facility in Valhalla. View their brochure about Special Waste
