Outlets for Odd Items

Untitled document

The following outlets will recycle or reuse odd items that cannot be recycled through curbside or drop-off collection programs. Please contact the individual companies for your recycling or reuse needs.

The District has not audited all the facilities listed on this page. Before using any computer recycler, make sure to conduct due diligence on the company. Your company is ultimately responsible for proper disposal of electronic equipment. Recyclers should provide a certificate of recycling and be able to tell you where each piece of demanufactured equipment is sent.

Visit our Recycling Outlets page for additional options.

If you would like to make any changes to this list, please contact Susan Schumacher at (513) 946-7734.
