Electronics Recycling

Computers and electronic devices contain hazardous materials, such as mercury. If not properly disposed of, these hazardous materials can contaminate our water, soil, and endanger our health.

Since 2002, ACDEM has partnered with OmniSource to offer a year-round Electronics Recycling program to Allen County residents, businesses and nonprofit agencies.  Indiana law (IC 13-20.5) banned electronics from landfill disposal in 2011.

Allen County residents can drop off unwanted computer and electronic equipment at:


1430 Meyer Road, Fort Wayne
Monday through Friday: 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
Saturday: 8 a.m.-noon

Enter at Gate 1


Televisions, CRTs, and monitors:

Under 46 inches=$10

Over 47 inches=$20

Residents will be assessed a minimal fee of $5 to recycle up to FIVE items per trip, with a 15 item limit.
