E-waste qualified for this special collection, provided by Pasadena Department of Public Works, includes:

  • computers
  • keyboards
  • printers
  • monitors
  • laptops
  • docking stations
  • scanners
  • shredders
  • fax machines
  • mice
  • telephones
  • televisions
  • flat screens
  • VCRs
  • DVD players
  • PDAs
  • cassette players
  • tape drives

  • household batteries

Many of the products have parts that will be recycled.

By law, e-waste cannot be disposed of in landfills because its hazardous parts can cause environmental damage.

"Electronic waste contaminates our air and water, and is hazardous to human health. We are here to help people in the greater Pasadena area properly recycle e-waste," said Gabriel Silva, environmental programs manager for Public Works.
