Word is getting out that it’s possible to recycle TVs, computers and monitors free at locations across the state, including 14 in Snohomish County, as part of the state’s E-Cycle Washington program.
But did you know it’s possible to recycle all of the above and just about any other kind of electronic junk, too, at PC Recycle’s five Washington stores?
In addition to recycling E-Cycle items for free, PC Recycle, for a charge, also accepts stereo components, speakers, printers, copiers, fax machines, DVD players and VCRs, plus microwaves and fluorescent light bulbs for recycling.
Fees for such so-called peripheral items are, for example, $10 for a small printer and $5 for a DVD player. It is a cost, but you’ll be doing the right thing, and your product may eventually be fixed up and sold at an economical price. Keyboards and computer mice are accepted free.
PC Recycle, which also offers pickup service in King, Pierce and Snohomish counties for a minimum $50 fee, refurbishes and resells many items, including TVs, computers and even individual parts. Items that can’t be sold are recycled.
