Electronic Waste (eWaste) Recycling
Options for eWaste Recycling
- 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 free and convenient 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 such as CostCo and RadioShack offer trade-in programs for computers, monitors, digital cameras, camcorders, game systems and other gadgets.
- Take unwanted eWaste to one of the City of Fort Worth’s three 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 also accepts these items at their donation centers.
