E-Waste / Hazardous Waste

  1. E-Waste
  2. Hazardous Waste

E-waste is a popular, informal name for electronic products nearing the end of their "useful life." Computers and other consumer electronics are a rapidly growing part of the solid waste stream. With newer, faster computers and consumer electronics available, residents need outlets to properly dispose of their old equipment. But computers, televisions, and other electronic equipment can contain lead, mercury, cadmium and other toxic materials that can contaminate our landfill. Currently, there are two locations that accept your electronics:

  • Goodwill Industries, Inc. - Goodwill Industries is located at:
    • 1030 14th Avenue
      Longview, WA 98632

  • Waste Control Recycling - The Waste Control Transfer Station Facility is located at:
    • 1150 3rd Avenue

    • Phone: 360-425-4302
    • The hours of operation are from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Both locations accept the following:

  • Computers
  • Laptops
  • Monitors
  • Televisions

Both locations do not accept the following:

  • Fax machines

If you have any of the items in the do not accept list, dispose of them by placing them in your green garbage container, or bringing them to the Waste Control Transfer Station.

Green Tip

Consider donating your used electronics. To cut down on E-waste, consider donating your used electronics to a nonprofit organization or schools in your community. Donate only useable equipment. You don’t want to dump your trash on an organization that doesn’t have the resources to dispose of your e-waste for you. If your computer is more than five years old, you should recycle it since software and equipment support is difficult to find for older systems.
