Electronics Recycling Drop Off
Bring all your electronics to GreenCitizen’s Burlingame EcoCenter, and we’ll make sure they get recycled responsibly and locally. We’re happy to accept almost anything that plugs into the wall or runs on batteries. By letting us recycle your reusable electronic items, like newer working computers (2014 or later for Apple, 2015 or later for certain non-Apple), plus monitors, TVs, and smartphones, you help us meet our operating costs — and will ultimately help us expand the GreenCitizen model of e-waste recycling and reuse to other metropolitan areas.
For business-friendly electronics recycling, please go to the Business Pickup page.
