Effective July 1, 2009, the Indiana Legislature enacted the Indiana Electronic Waste Program (IC 13-20.5).  The purpose of this legislation is to bring about the reduction of the amount of electronic waste that is being improperly disposed of.  This legislation holds companies that manufacture electronic items responsible for recycling 60% of what they produce.  

Why Recycle Electronics?

Electronics contain heavy metals, including lead, mercury, cadmium and hexavalent chromium that can be very harmful if released into the environment.  Recycling of electronics ensures these materials are safely managed and valuable materials such as copper, gold, tin, silicon and aluminum are reclaimed for the manufacturing of new products.  Reusing and recycling raw material from electronic waste conserves natural resources and reduces air and water pollution. 

We are able to collect electronics year around now at the District office.  The items that can be brought into the district office to be recycled are:
