Welcome to the Vermont Electronic Recycling Program

The FREE Vermont E-Cycles electronic recycling program established collection locations that are located statewide and operate year-round (click here for a list of locations). All computers, monitors, printers, computer peripherals and TVs - regardless of brand, age, or condition - are accepted for FREE recycling.

Vermont’s electronic waste law bans the disposal of certain electronic devices and provides for FREE and convenient collection of computers, monitors, printers, computer peripherals, and televisions for covered entities: consumers, charities, school districts, and small businesses that employ 10 or fewer individuals. Other individuals who bring in seven (7) or fewer devices can also recycle at no charge. All other banned electronic devices other than those mentioned above are also accepted at these locations; however, there may be a fee to dispose of those items.

Why does Vermont have an E-Cycles program?

  • Electronic devices contain toxic materials (including lead, mercury, and chromium) that should be managed responsibly as well as precious metals (such as gold) that should be recovered and recycled
  • Although electronic waste is a small component of all waste that is disposed, it is the fastest growing component of waste. Consider that in 1970, most households had only 1 TV and 0 computers. More than 1.6 million pounds of e-waste were collected by VT solid waste districts in 2008.
  • Manufacturers will pay for the e-waste collection and recycling program starting July 1, 2011.
