Television & Computer Disposal (PDF)

E-Cycle Wisconsin, the State’s new electronics recycling law, creates a program for electronics recycling that will be overseen by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR). Under the new law, as of September 1, 2010, several types of electronic devices will now be banned from landfills and incineration, regardless of where the items are from or who has used them. Items now banned from Wisconsin landfills include:

  • desktop computers
  • desktop printers, including printers combined with fax machines, scanners and copiers
  • video display devices of at least 7” long in the longest diagonal dimension, including TVs, laptops and computer monitors
  • computer peripherals, including keyboards, mice, hard drives, scanners, speakers, flash drives, external modems and other devices
  • DVD players, VCRs, DVRs and other video players
  • fax machines
  • cell phones
