VT E Cycles Recycling computer related items

What makes this Special Materials?

Computers and their peripherals (speakers, printers, cords, etc.) and televisions must not go in the trash because they contain materials that can be recycled into new products and because they could cause harm to environmental health. They are considered Special Materials because they cannot go in the trash OR the recycling bin. Fees for recycling televisions and computers are covered under Vermont’s E-Cycles law.
