The Morris County Municipal Utilities Authority reminds residents in all 39 Morris County towns that state law prohibits putting certain electronics in the household trash and that this “E-Waste’’ must be disposed of properly.

Televisions, computers, computer monitors, laptops, tablets, printers and fax machines must be brought to an E-Waste recycling center for proper disposal.

A list below outlines municipal depots, non-profits, stores and dedicated recyclers in the Morris County area that properly dispose of E-Waste. Check their websites for specific instructions.

Only electronics listed above are mandated for proper disposal currently, so collection sites are not required to take items such as microwaves, toasters and alarm clocks. If the items are in working condition, consider donating them to a charitable non-profit.

Otherwise, discard these items as garbage, bulk waste or scrap metal. Please remove any rechargeable batteries and recycle them first.

Going forward, the MUA will not accept E-Waste during Household Hazardous Waste collection days at the Morris County Fire and Police Training Academy, including the upcoming June 9 event.

Following is a partial list of facilities that recycle E-Waste.
