Electronics Recycling
The La Crosse County Hazardous Materials program has a recycling program for your unwanted electronic items. Did you know that many electronics contain heavy metals like lead, mercury, and several rare metals that can be easily recycled? Electronic waste (E-waste) can be recycled at the Hazardous Materials Facility during the following schedule:


Effective July 1, 2015

Due to the increasing cost of recycling leaded glass from CRTs (cathode ray tubes), there will be a charge for all TVs delivered to HHM.  Starting 7/1/2015 HHM will institute the following charges for TV’s:

  • $5 for TV’s <21”
  • $10 for TV’s >21

All other e-waste is still free to households and K-12 schools.

Other E-Waste Fees:

  • Businesses - $0.20 per pound. Monday or Thursday only. Call for an appointment.

TV's and other e-waste that have been salvaged - $0.25 per pound.
Regardless if from a household or business. *See note at the bottom

*Salvaging is disassembling an item to remove parts that have ptential recycling value. Salvaging electronic waste, especially TV's, can be dangerous and is potentially a violation of WDNR regulations. Because of the increased cost of disposal and an increased risk to employee, the Household Hazardous Materials Program changes $0.25/pound for any electronic waste that has been salvaged. No exceptions.
