It is illegal to dispose of many electronic devices, known as “ewaste,” in the trash in Vermont (see “Electronics Banned from Landfills” in the sidebar). We accept only the items in the table below for electronics recycling.

Fees for electronics vary based on who you are and what you are dropping off. To view the correct information, please select the box below that applies to you.

Where to Recycle Electronics

CSWD Facilities

1 cubic yard compared to a human figure and a box.

Ewaste is accepted at any CSWD Drop-Off Center except the Burlington location, or at the CSWD Environmental Depot by appointment only. The Environmental Depot does not accept ewaste-only loads (please use a Drop-Off Center). Loads of 1 cubic yard or more are accepted by appointment only at the Williston Drop-Off Center. Call 802-872-8100 to make an appointment.

Please come prepared to unload and place your TVs and other electronics in the collection area yourself. Our staff cannot assist you.
