Free Electronics Recycling Now Available for Ramsey County Residents

Ramsey County residents looking to get rid of laptops, televisions, cell phones or other electronics (e-waste) now have a free and easy way to recycle them. Used and old electronics are the fastest-growing waste in the country and often contain toxic metals like lead, mercury and cadmium. Ramsey County Environmental Health is partnering with Repowered to reuse or refurbish unwanted electronics, and to keep toxic metals out of the environment. All data from electronics dropped off at the e-waste site will be destroyed physically or electronically wiped.

The electronics collection site is located at:
