Extended Hours Announced For Recycling of Electronic Devices

In an effort to reduce contamination from materials that pose environmental and health risks and to encourage recycling, a new state law went into effect on January 1, 2012 that prohibits certain electronic devices from landfills. City of Carbondale Solid Waste Collectors will be prohibited from knowingly collecting the banned electronic devices with other refuse on this date. The electronic items banned include the following:

  • Televisions Facsimile (Fax) Machines
  • Computer Monitors Video Recorders (VCRs)
  • Computer Towers Digital Video Disc (DVD) Players & Recorders
  • Laptop Computers Printers
  • Keyboards and Electronic Mice Scanners
  • Small Scale Servers Video Game Consoles
  • Digital Converter Boxes Cable Receivers
  • Satellite Receivers IPODs and MP3 players

To assist residents that have these items to recycle, the Jackson County Health Department has sponsored free household electronics recycling drop-off service at Southern Recycling Center located at 300 W. Chestnut Street in Carbondale. Hours of operation are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Friday, and Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

In addition to the normal hours, the City of Carbondale will partner with Southern Recycling Center and the Jackson County Health Department to help provide extended hours for residents to drop off discarded household electronics for recycling.

These dates will be posted as they come available.
