NEW! Mandatory e-waste recycling begins July 1, 2013.
Beginning July 1, 2013 it will be a violation of the solid waste regulations for residents of Colorado to dispose of electronic waste in their trash.

Under limited conditions, a Board of County Commissioners may vote to temporarily exempt its residents from the ban.
Electronics that are banned from disposal include:
computers & computer monitors, televisions, printers, fax machines, DVD & VCR players, Peripherals such as keyboards & mice, radios & stereos, video game consoles, laptops, notebooks, Ultrabooks, netbooks & tablets.
