Regulations developed by the California Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) went into effect. The regulations prohibit the disposal of E-Waste into trash and municipal landfills
Electronic waste, commonly referred to as E-waste is a name for electronic products nearing the end of their "useful life." Computers, televisions, VCRs, stereos, copiers, and fax machines are common electronic products. Many of these products can be reused, refurbished, or recycled. The term "e-waste" can be loosely applied to products such as microwave ovens or small household appliances with a plug.
SmartRiverside is a State Certified E-Waste (Electronic Waste) Collection Facility. Systems that do not meet the minimum requirements for the Digital Inclusion Program are disposed of by a State Approved e-Waste recycling center that pays SmartRiverside for the e-Waste material. The recycling and refurbishment of this material contributes to the operational costs of SmartRiverside, supplies low-income families with free computer systems and most certainly assists in protecting our environment in accordance with our nation’s Green Initiatives.
Riverside Household Hazardous Waste Facilities also accept residential TVs, monitors, CRTs, and other consumer electronic devices for recycling.
