TV & CRT Monitors Recycling Fees Increase

Because of our increasing costs to recycle the toxic materials inside TVs and CRT Monitors the District has had to raise fees for that service.

Beginning November 1st, televisions and CRT monitors under 46 inches will cost $10.00 to recycle and televisions over 47 inches will cost $20.00 per television to recycle.

All other electronic devices remain at the long-standing recycling fee of $5.00 for up to 5 items.  The drop-off site for electronics recycling is OmniSource, 1430 Meyer Rd.  M-F 9-5, Sat 8-12.
