The Regional Waste Management Authority and Recology Yuba-Sutter have implemented an Electronic Waste Recycling Program for Yuba and Sutter County residents and businesses. Electronic waste items can now be recycled at two locations -- the Recology Yuba-Sutter Transfer Station in Marysville and, effective April 14, 2007, at the Yuba-Sutter Household Hazardous Waste Facility in Yuba City. Televisions, monitors and other electronic waste must be packed, transported and unloaded so as to avoid breakage. Please contact the Recology Yuba-Sutter Environmental Department at (530) 743-6933 for assistance in disposing of equipment with broken screens or broken cathode ray tube (CRT) glass.
Examples of recyclable electronic waste items:
- Televisions and computer monitors
- Telephones and answering machines
- Computers and computer peripherals
- Stereo and video equipment
- Microwave ovens
- Portable LCD screen DVD players
Disposal of these items in garbage or recycling containers is prohibited.
Recology Yuba-Sutter Transfer Station
Electronic waste items can be recycled at the Recology Yuba-Sutter Transfer Station located at 3001 N. Levee Road off of Highway 20, just east of Marysville. Consumer electronic materials are accepted at this facility 7 days a week from 7:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Electronic waste items are accepted free of charge, however disposal weight charges will be assessed on the entire load if other non-electronic waste items are included in the load. (Residents and businesses must be able to unload and carry their own equipment.) Businesses, schools, non-profits and government agencies must complete an Electronic Waste Delivery/Collection Tracking Form or a bill of lading certifying that the electronic waste is from a California source. Businesses and other entities with large numbers of electronic waste items must also call Recology Yuba-Sutter at (530) 743-6933 in advance to schedule a drop off. Collection of electronic waste can also be arranged for a fee.
