Electronic Waste: Reuse, Donation, and Recycling Organizations

January 2013

This page provides links to non-EPA web sites that provide additional information about Electronic Waste. You will leave the EPA.gov domain and enter another page with more information. EPA cannot attest to the accuracy of information on that non-EPA page. Providing links to a non-EPA Web site is not an endorsement of the other site or the information it contains by EPA or any of its employees. Also, be aware that the privacy protection provided on the EPA.gov domain (see Privacy and Security Notice) may not be available at the external link. Click icon for EPA disclaimer.

To promote computer reuse and recycling, and discourage discarding equipment in the trash, EPA offers New England residents a list of reuse, donation and recycle organizations.  These organizations can help find new users for your old equipment.  If you cannot find someone to use your computer, a recycler may take it apart and salvage and/or recycle the valuable materials.  Contact these organizations to see what they accept, any associated fees, and how transportation is arranged.

In compiling this list, we cannot include all the local organizations that accept computers for reuse or recycling. We encourage you to use the list as a starting point and check other options, such as local universities and colleges, vocational schools, charities, libraries and religious organizations.  Your local recycling coordinator might also offer information on other programs.  Finally, listing your computer equipment on a Materials/Waste Exchange (listed by state, see below) may help identify other businesses or organizations that can use it.

If you have questions about donating or recycling a computer, or if you have suggestions for additions or corrections to this list, please contact:
