Electronics Recycling

eCYCLE DC - Electronics Recycling

Over 20 pieces of electronic equipment (such as TVs, DVD players, and computers) are found in the average American household and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates over 3 million tons of electronic waste is generated each year in the United States. Properly recycling electronics conserves natural resources, ensures appropriate handling of toxic materials, provides a more sustainable source of precious metals, and protects human health and the environment.


The Sustainable Solid Waste Management Amendment Act of 2014, using the principles of extended producer responsibility, requires manufacturers of covered electronic equipment (CEE) sold in the District to collect and recycle electronic waste generated in the city. DOEE reviews and provides oversight of manufacturers’ collection and recycling plans. Under eCYCLE DC, there are requirements for manufacturers and retailers of covered electronic equipment (CEE) and there are new opportunities for individuals to properly recycle their electronics.

Please see the links below for more information.

  • Individuals- Learn how to recycle your electronics.
  • Manufacturers- Learn about manufacturer registration and collection requirements.
  • Retailers- Learn about the responsibility of retailers.
  • Resources- Find important documents related to eCYCLE DC.

With the support of Wisetek, a locally-based global leader in IT asset disposal (ITAD), re-use and manufacturing services, electronics manufacturers will collect used electronic equipment at neighborhood locations across the city, in addition to the DPW Ft. Totten Transfer Station residential drop-off facilities available every Saturday from 8am-3pm.
