The City of Huntsville Solid Waste and Recycling Services hosted it's 10th Annual Electronics Recycling Day on Saturday, April 1 2017, from 9 a.m. - Noon at the Transfer Station Facility. This year we were able to collect 7.783 tons of recyclable electronics with 229 people coming to the event! This brings us to a grand total of 154.01 tons of recycled electronic and over 2,000 visitors since 2008!
This year we added tire recycling to the event. The first 8 passenger car or light truck tires are free. Print out this flyer and spread the word!
Technocycle of Houston has graciously sponsored the last 7 events and provided the staff, trucks, and packing supplies to haul the electronics. Recycling events could cost from $4,000 - $10,000 without Technocyle’s continued support.
Volunteers from the Walker County Sheriff’s Office, Walker County Community Supervision and Corrections, Master Gardeners, Try 2 Recycle, and the City of Huntsville Disposal and Recycling staff assist during this single day event.

Purpose The purpose for Electronics Recycling is to divert recyclable electronics from the waste stream and avoid placing items in landfills which can be recycled and re-manufactured into other products.
