As of July 2011, North Carolina state legislation banned TVs and computers from NC landfills. The City of Wilmington no longer picks up these items. But there's good news! You can recycle electronics! Electronics recycling includes computers, monitors, TVs and cell phones, etc.
- New Hanover County's Environmental Management department accepts household hazardous waste materials six days a week including electronics. Bring all items to the New Hanover County Environmental Management Office located at 3002 Hwy 421 N Wilmington 28401 (former WASTEC). The hours of operation are Monday-Friday 10am-2pm and Saturday 8am-noon. Call 910-798-4400 for more information. For a full list of accepted items, click here.
- By North Carolina Law, all computer equipment manufacturers, including makers of desktops, laptops, computer monitors, printers, scanners, keyboards and mice must offer a no-cost recycling program to North Carolina households.
