Recycle your computers, monitors, and televisions for free
A free recycling program for computers, monitors and TVs is now available through the E-Cycle Washington program. This program allows residents to take their old electronic devices to be recycled without having to pay a fee. The City recycling events will still be held in May and September but they will not accept computers, monitors and TV’s. These items can be recycled at several local E-Cycle centers. Find a list of collection locations at The Department of Ecology or call 1-800-recycle. Please note that computer peripherals such as keyboards, mice, and printers are not included in this program.
Semi-annual Community Recycling Events
The City of Normandy Park and City of Burien have a spring and fall community recycling event. Items that are collected typically include electronics, computer equipment, television sets, tires, batteries, cardboard, propane tanks, porcelain toilets and sinks, refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, appliances and scrap metal, mattresses and box springs, styrofoam, and document shredding. Recycled plastic compost bins, worm bins, and rain barrels are also for sale at these events.
