Computer and E-Waste Recycling

The Macomb County Health Department cannot accept computers or any other electronic devices (E-waste) at this time. Check with your local municipality or school district to find out if they are holding a collection event.

The following municipalities and schools are holding e-waste recycling events:

Washington Township (residents only)

Shelby Township (residents only)

St. Clair Shores (residents only)

Please visit http://search.earth911.com/ to find a list of recyclers in your area.

Most electronic devices contain a variety of contaminants such as lead, cadmium, beryllium, or brominated flame retardants that can enter our environment. Recycling recovers valuable materials from electronics that can be used to make new products. As a result energy and existing natural resources are conserved by extracting fewer raw materials from the earth, and air and water pollution caused by hazardous disposal is avoided. Safe recycling of electronics supports responsible management of toxic chemicals such as lead and mercury. Additionally, recycling reduces the amount of greenhouse gas emissions caused by the manufacturing of new products.
