What to do about electronics?

The solution is E-Cycle Missouri, a tiered voluntary program through the Department of Natural Resources. The US Environmental Protection Agency estimates that more than 2 million tons of computers and other electronics are disposed of each year. Currently only about 20 percent of these materials are being recycled. Please visit Dept. of Natural Resources website or call (573) 751-3176 or 1-800-361-4827.

What you can recycle:

• Computers - CPUs, monitors, keyboards and mice
• Printers
• TVs
• Handheld devices
• Cell Phones

You may also contact electronic retailers in your community to find out if they have a take-back program. Visit the manufacturer's website to find out if they participate in a take-back program.

The recycling drop-off site was construced with grant monies received from the Department of Natural Resources and Mid-America Regional Council Solid Waste Management District. With this grant the City constructed a new concerete site for parking and unloading of recyclables, the building itself and the fence, pictured above.
