Electronic items may be recycled at the Fairfield Transfer Station by residential customers during regular station hours. (No commercial recycling please.)
The Solid Waste & Recycling Commission passed a regulation which bans Electronic Devices and Mercury Containing Devices from the Waste Stream. The Town has contracted with RMG Electronics to have the Electronics recycled. If the computers have usable hard drives, RMG Electronics takes the hard drives and formats them and removes all of the data on them. They have insured us that all data is destroyed, which meets Department of Defense Standards for data destruction. .
Typical items that may be recycled include cell phones, remote controls, keyboards, digital cameras, televisions, microwave ovens, copy machines, scanners, computers, cd players, dvd players, etc.
There is no charge for electronics recycling for Fairfield residents.
