Electronics Donation & Recycling

Electronic products are made from valuable resources and materials, including metals, plastics, and glass, all of which require energy to mine and manufacture. Donating or recycling consumer electronics conserves our natural resources and avoids air and water pollution, as well as greenhouse gas emissions caused by manufacturing virgin materials.

  1. Did you know? Texas has manufacturer take-back laws for both computers and televisions. Many of these offer mail-back programs at no cost to you! This is the easiest way to recycle your old computer or TV. To find information on each program, please visit the links below. Once there, find the manufacturer of the item you want to recycle and follow the link to the business page for recycling. Look for mail-back options once there. Most provide a free shipping label that you just put on the box with the item and mail back. This cost is covered by the manufacturer per state law.
