Vermont E-Cycles

Did you know the Concord Transfer Station participates in the FREE Vermont E-Cycles Recycling Program?

Why does Vermont have an E-Cycles program?

  • Electronic devices contain toxic materials (including lead, mercury, and chromium) that should be managed responsibly as well as precious metals (such as gold) that should be recovered and recycled.
  • Although electronic waste is a small component of all waste that is disposed, it is the fastest growing component of waste.  Consider that in 1970, most households had only 1 TV and 0 computers. More than 1.6 million pounds of e-waste were collected by VT solid waste districts in 2008.
  • Manufacturers will pay for the e-waste collection and recycling program starting July 1, 2011.
