- Visit the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) website for recycling options offered by computer and television manufacturers. All computer and television manufacturers are required to offer recycling options for the equipment they produce.
- Conduct an Internet search for companies that are accepting and in some cases offering rebates for electronic items such as MP3 players, wireless phones, electronic camcorders etc. Some stores sometimes offer trade-in programs for computers, monitors, digital cameras, camcorders, game systems and other gadgets.
- Take unwanted electronics to one of the City of Fort Worth's four drop-off stations for recycling. The drop-off stations will accept computer equipment, many other electronic items and up to two televisions per Fort Worth household every six months. These items will then be recycled under an agreement that the city has with Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth. Goodwill does not accept televisions or computers at Goodwill centers, only at the drop-off centers.
