E-Waste Events

The City of Tracy in partnership with San Joaquin County host FREE E-Waste collection events quarterly on the second Saturday of the month.  The next event date is:

April 8, 2017 from 9am - 1pm  @ Boyd Service Center - Gate 1
                                                        520 Tracy Blvd, Tracy, CA

These FREE E-Waste Recycling Events give residents and local businesses an opportunity to dispose of their unwanted electronic devices. Additionally, Styrofoam packaging and cardboard will also be collected free of charge.

 

These one-day drop-off events aim to increase public awareness of recycling while decreasing the amount of recyclables sent to our landfills.  For example, Styrofoam, technically called expanded polystyrene foam (EPS) and now accepted in your curbside recycling toter, can be recycled into a variety of sustainable green building products, including decorative molding and other non-structural wood-alternatives. 

 

The following items will be accepted at the FREE E-Waste Events:

 

  • Electronics (TVs, monitors, computers, printers, VCRs, radios, stereos, cell phones, telephones, answering machines, small countertop microwaves)
  • Fluorescent bulbs (limit 20 bulbs per resident/business)
  • Household batteries
  • Mercury items (mercury thermometers & old thermostats, novelty items)
  • Cardboard
  • Clean, white (#6) polystyrene block foam packaging
  • Holiday lights

 

There is no limit on the amount of Styrofoam that may be dropped off at these events, but residents and businesses are urged to follow these simple guidelines:

 

  • Bring only Styrofoam that is clean, white, block foam packaging (#6)

  • Remove any foreign materials such as tape, stickers, labels, and cardboard

  • Contain the Styrofoam in a bag, bundle or box for easy transport

  • Make sure the material is actually Styrofoam – look for the #6 recycling symbol

 The following items will NOT be accepted:

 

  • Packing peanuts (most mailing service stores will recycle packing peanuts)

  • Bubble wrap

  • Food or beverage containers

  • Major appliances (County Solid Waste Facilities accept these for free)

  • Automotive batteries

 

Individuals with more than 20 electronic devices must call 209-234-7994 in advance to make arrangements with Onsite Electronics Recycling for bulk collection.

These FREE Recycling Events are sponsored by the cities and County of San Joaquin and Onsite Electronics Recycling.  For additional information, please call the City of Tracy at 209-831-6300.

Our scheduled dates for the 2017 E-Waste events will be:
          January 14th                         July 8th
          April 8th                                October 14th
