Douglas County residents may recycle their electronics for free – starting today!

No need to wait, e-recycling drop-off now available year-round

Electronics recyclingDo you have unwanted electronics taking up valuable space in your closets, basement or garage? Great news, you no longer have to wait for a one-day community-wide recycling event or spend precious time in a long line to dispose of them.

At their April 13 Business Meeting, Douglas County Commissioners approved a contract with Techno Rescue to provide free, year-round electronics recycling services to county residents throughout 2021.

Drop off electronic waste weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and one Saturday per month from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Techno Rescue, 3251 Lewiston Street in Aurora. The first Saturday drop-off date is April 17, 2021.

Proof of residency is required and there will be no fees charged as part of the Douglas County Community Electronics Recycling Program.

There is no limit on the number of household electronics, including computers and all types of televisions that may be dropped off. No appliances — refrigerators, microwaves, air conditioners, washing machines, dryers, etc. — can be accepted.
