Aurora Spring Electronics Recycling Events Start April 4

The city of Aurora is making spring cleanup even easier by hosting additional drop-off electronics recycling events.

Old and unwanted electronics can be dropped off for recycling from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on April 4, May 23, and June 13 at Aurora’s Central Garage, 720 N. Broadway Avenue (Route 25); and April 11, May 30, and June 20 at the City’s Customer Service Center, 3770 McCoy Drive.

Eligible electronics that will be collected include monitors, computers (both PCs and Macs), laptops, televisions, printers, fax machines, scanners, computer accessories (mouses, keyboards and modems), video game consoles, telephones, answering machines, cell phones, personal digital assistants (PDAs), MP3 players, cameras, camcorders, servers and networking equipment, DVD players, stereos, and VCRs.  Microwaves are the only kitchen appliances accepted for recycling.

Large appliances such as air conditioners, stoves, refrigerators, freezers; smaller appliances including toasters and coffee makers; and household hazardous waste materials are not accepted.

The city began providing free electronics recycling to residents in 2010 and expanded the program year-round in 2012 when a state law took effect barring electronics from being disposed of in landfills.
