Dispose of Your Old Electronics For Free
The annual Free Electronic Waste Collection Day is this Saturday, September 26, at the Logan Landfill from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event is made possible by Gallatin Solid Waste Management District and 406 Recycling.
Items that will be accepted are as the following:
- TVs (including CRT, LCD and rear-projection)
- digital cameras
- mobile phones
- fax machines
- DVD players
- stereos and equipment
- remote controls
- microwave (clean inside and no tray),
- servers, tablets
- digital clock radios and accessories and cord.
If you’re not sure if something is considered e-waste, call 406-582-2493 for clarification.
The items collected will be processed by 406 Recycling to ensure that high environmental standards are followed through the recycling process. All data and personal information will be kept secure until it is destroyed.
Here's How it Works
Customers will need to stop at the gate before the scale house for instructions. If you have other items to dispose, normal trash rates still apply.
For more information about this Free. e-waste collection event, contact call Patty at 406-582-2493, or email Patricia.Howard@gallatin.mt.gov. You can also visit GallatinSolidWaste.org.
While technically not illegal in Montana, it is highly suggested and recommended that you dispose of our computers, cell phones, and TVs responsibly.
Here's Why The Montana DEQ Says You Should Recycle Old Electronics
- Electronics contain valuable metals and components that can be used again in another manufacturing process.
- Cadmium, hexavalent chromium, mercury, chromium, barium, beryllium and brominated flame-retardant materials are components that can pollute water and air resources without proper disposal or recycling.
- Hazardous waste threatens human health and the environment.
