If you have electronics that are no longer in use, give them a second life or recycle them responsibly at upcoming electronic recycling events in the Kansas City metro area and at nationwide locations.

Most recycling events will take computers, laptops, keyboards, speakers, routers, modems, webcams, network hubs, cell phones, charging cables, phone systems, shredders, fax machines, scanners, VCR and DVD players, video game consoles, printers, copiers and more. Some will also take home appliances, exercise equipment, kitchen appliances and lawn equipment. Many items are recycled for free, but some require a fee. For more details, click on the link to the recycling company hosting each event.
