Household survey shows many residents are storing unwanted electronics
In early 2016, the Department of Natural Resources conducted a statewide household recycling survey that included several questions on electronics recycling.
Key takeaways from the 2016 survey include:
While compiling these detailed results, the DNR discovered errors in survey data included in the E-Cycle Wisconsin 2016 report. An updated version, with revisions to the “Disposal ban awareness and compliance” section, is also available on our website.
Register for May 31 collection site webinar
The DNR will hold a free workshop on electronics collection site best management practices May 31. This workshop will be focused on site-level requirements and best management practices for drop-off sites and events that collect electronics and universal waste.
If you collect or recycle electronics, oversee an electronics collection program, or represent a municipality contracting for e-cycling services, we encourage you to attend. The information will also be useful to anyone wanting to understand the rules and best management practices for collecting electronics and universal waste (such as lamps and batteries). The workshop will provide an update on the E-Cycle Wisconsin program and information to help you find reputable recyclers to manage your electronics responsibly.
We have reached capacity for our meeting room, but have a webinar option via Skype. If you select this option on the registration form, you will receive an invitation to the Skype meeting with a link and call-in number. The meeting will not be recorded.
Updated electronics collection site list
There have been several updates to our list of registered electronics collection sites, including the addition of upcoming one-day collection events throughout the state.
