Happy New Year! With the holiday season behind us, many residents may have received or purchased a new computer or tablet during the holidays. You may be wondering what to do with your old tablet or computer. Here in Hudson County, there is only one answer: electronic waste recycling!

New Jersey enacted its Electronic Waste Law in 2011 which banned electronics including desktop computers, monitors, laptops, portable computers and televisions from being disposed of in the garbage. This law holds manufacturers responsible for 100% of the cost of recycling electronic devices. The Hudson County Improvement Authority works with manufacturers and third-party vendors to recycle these electronics.

The HCIA offers residents several different options to safely dispose of these electronic devices at no cost. During the HCIA’s Household Hazardous Waste Collection Days, Hudson County residents can bring old computers, monitors, mice and keyboards. Please note that items such as printers and televisions will not be accepted! Check the HCIA’s Calendar of Events and Social Media for HHW Collection Days scheduled throughout the County.

The HCIA has set up convenient Electronic Drop Boxes in locations throughout the County, where residents can easily drop off their old devices. Approved recyclables for these containers include: cables, cameras, computers and peripherals, DVD players, keyboards, laptops, mice, monitors, peripherals, printers, radios and stereo components, scanners, telephones, televisions and VCRs. Visit HCIA.org for the full list of Hudson County E-Waste Collection Sites throughout Hudson County, or download the MyWaste App for additional information at the touch of a button!
