Tossing unwanted electronics into your trash can has always been a very bad practice. The good news is that dumping electronics into landfills will become illegal in Arkansas beginning next year.
We recommend taking your unwanted electronics to the Washington County Environmental Affairs and Recycling Office.
During January, the Washington County Environmental Affairs and Recycling Office is accepting these items for free:
· Any type of electronics - TVs, computers, old cell phones, printers, laptops, DVD players, VCRs
Please do not throw old TVs or printers in the trash! Instead, drop them off at the Hazardous Waste facility. The facility will send it out to be properly recycled. The Washington County Household Hazardous Waste facility is open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
