District of Columbia

The District of Columbia has enacted the Sustainable Solid Waste Management Act of 2014.  The Act requires manufacturers of covered electronic equipment, whose products are sold in the District, to register and participate in a recycling program.  For general information, please see the District of Columbia Department of Energy and Environment’s website.

Covered electronic equipment covered under the Act includes:  desktop and laptop computers, tablets, E-readers, small-scale servers, portable digital music players that are battery powered, computer monitors, mice, keyboards, computer speakers, desktop printers, televisions, VCRs, DVD players, DVRs, signal converter boxes, cable and satellite receivers, and gaming consoles used with TVs.

Below is a list of 2020 collection events where District of Columbia consumers (residents, small business and non-profits) can drop off covered electronic equipment for recycling.  All events will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., rain or shine.
