CVWMA's Electronics Recycling Program

Various parts of popular electronic devices may contain dangerous heavy metals, including lead, silver, barium, cadmium, chromium and mercury. CVWMA’s electronics recycling program helps citizens properly dispose of unwanted equipment instead of landfilling them where they could cause soil, water or air contamination. Equipment collected in this program will be demanufactured for recycling. Some components may be refurbished for continued use. Over 5 million pounds of e-waste has been recycled through this program since 2006.

Buy fresh. Buy local.

For a variety of locally grown fruits, vegetables, and more, shop your local farmer’s market. Click here for listing of local farmer’s markets in our region. In addition, support our local economy by remembering to Think. Shop. Buy. Local.
