Electronic & Universal Waste

That State of California has prohibited electronic waste, such as fluorescent tubes and consumer batteries, from the trash or landfill bin because they contain poisonous heavy metals such as lead, mercury and cadmium. These chemicals can pollute groundwater near landfills and pose harmful effects on public health.

CURBSIDE
If you are a residential customer, you may schedule up to two free Bulky Item Pickups and include electronic items (this is also good for large appliances like refrigerators or washing machines).

DROP OFF
Drop off electronic items at the Yuba-Sutter Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facility or at the Recology Yuba-Sutter Transfer Station.

Accepted Electronic/Universal Waste Items:

    • Batteries & fluorescent lamps – free disposal for residents. If you are a business or commercial customer, please schedule an appointment for drop-off at the Yuba-Sutter Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facility.
