Electronics Recycling:
As of January 1, 2015 electronics were no longer acceptable for disposal at landfills in NYS. This is part of a phased ban of electronics that began in 2011, per the NYS Electronic Equipment Recycling and Reuse Act.

The County offers an electronics recycling program at all of our solid waste facilities.You will still be able to get rid of your unwanted electronics.

What is accepted?
Electronics such as PC's, televisions, printers, DVD players, cellphones, and video game systems. All "Covered Electronic Equipment" per the NYSDEC guideline is accepted. Limit 5 pieces per vehicle. If you have more, please call the landfill to make special arrangements.

* Please note, Beginning in 2018 there is a $15 fee for TV's and Monitors

No exchange or removal of items is permitted.

NOT ACCEPTED: Items such as microwaves, typewriters, toasters, and large copiers are not accepted as part of this program.

When and where can you bring it? At any of our solid waste facilities, during normal business hours.

Who can participate? Steuben County residents only. We usually accomodate businesses if possible, but request that you call ahead so we are prepared.

Why Recycle Electronics? U.S. consumers throw away 400 million units of electronic equipment each year. Recycling electronic waste protects human health and the environment by:

-- Keeping toxins such as lead, mercury and cadmium from contaminating the air, water and soil.
-- Conserving natural resources by allowing valuable materials to be reclaimed and reused.

And now, it's the law.
