Recycling Computer Equipment

The Oklahoma Computer Equipment Recovery Act requires computer manufacturers to offer a free and convenient recycling service.  Please call the manufacturer to ensure they will accept your device(s), as restrictions vary by location and product acceptance.  The Oklahoma Computer Equipment Recovery Act pertains to computer equipment only.  If you are looking to recycle electronic waste other than computer equipment, see Option 4 for more details.

Your options:

Option 1

Determine your equipment’s manufacturer.  Visit the manufacturer’s website for recycling/take-back information.  They will likely have a mail-back program.  It is often easier to search the internet for the manufacturer’s name + recycling (e.g. “Sony recycling”), than to search their website.

Option 2

Use one of the following corporate recycling programs that accept brands other than their own.  Visit their website for details.

Small electronics contain coltan, which is mined in the Democratic Republic of Congo.  This mining threatens gorilla habitat, along with other endangered species.  Donating helps to re-use coltan, reducing the need to mine.
