Electronics contain heavy metals that can be harmful if released into the environment. As a result, electronics are banned from Indiana landfills and will not be picked up curbside.

Refurbish broken electronics at a local electronics repair shop. DIY repair instructions are available online for many items.
Resell or donate electronics in good condition before disposing of products.
Contact the product manufacturer for electronic recycling options or take electronic waste (e-waste) to ACDEM's Electronics Recycling Program.
