For electronics, we currently have a recycle bin for computer towers, printers, and laptops. Call for any other items you may have. Another option is to check with Best Buy and Staples to learn about their take-back programs.
WCSW will accept Freon appliances from businesses with or without a certificate of evacuation for a fee of $36.78, residents may bring in an Freon appliance with or without the certificate at no charge. All other appliances are accepted as regular household waste.
When it comes to batteries, it depends on the type as to how to recycle it. If your batteries don’t meet the following criteria, please bring them to our household hazardous waste day.
Residents may bring out lead acid vehicle batteries free of charge to the landfill. Make sure to tell the scale house operators as you enter the landfill and they will direct you to the proper drop off location.
A drop box for rechargeable batteries and cell phones is located in the scale house at the landfill. This material is sent to a nonprofit organization that recycles the material. We cannot accept batteries heavier than 5 pounds.
The landfill does not have a specific drop off for these types of batteries. Currently, these are thrown out with your regular garbage. The best practice is to tape the terminals before throwing them away.
The money collected from your recycling is given 100% back to the cities and towns that make up Washington County for community enhancement projects.Contact Us
