Recycle Electronics - Many electronics, especially TVs and computers contain toxic materials such as lead, cadmuim and mercury.  Reusing and recycling electronics keeps these toxic materials out of our landfills and incinerators and also recovers valuable resources. The electronic equipment this program collects will be taken apart and separtated into materials such as glass, plastic, metal and toxic chemicals.  All recycling will follow performance standards set by the Department of Ecology.  Washington now has a FREE, convenient and environmentally responsible recycling program for computers, monitors, laptops and television. LINK
