What is

Electronics Recycling?

Electronics 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.

The State of Vermont has a special VT E-Cycles program. Under this program many common electronics are accepted at no fee for recycling. Electronics not covered by this program will still be recycled but for a fee.

Have questions about the VT E-Cycles program? Give them a call at 1-855-6ecycle (1-855-632-9253).
