TVs, monitors, and other electronics are costly to recycle. The good news, however, is that many retailers will take back their products for recycling at no cost to you!
We believe that retailers and manufacturers should take responsibility for the entire life cycle of their products, but we know that retailers do not always make that an option. If you've checked the link above and find you're out of luck with your retailer, our Sandy Springs Recycling Center can take limited items and within that, they are often limited to Sandy Springs Residents only.
Not a Sandy Springs resident? Novus Solutions, LLC and Atlanta Recycling Solutions are two organizations we are proud to recommend. They will accept electronics from any person regardless of residency for safe and responsible handling and recycling.
