2017 EWASTE poster

The City of Portland is working with the University of Southern Maine to support the 5th Annual FREE E-Waste Disposal Day on April 22, 2017 from 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM.


People often do not know the proper way to dispose of electronics after they no longer have use for them. We do not want E-waste material in the general waste stream or worse, dumped on the side of the road. This is a great opportunity to clean up those closets or basements that can collect these items. 


The recycling event is free and open to the public. The following items will be accepted and recycled for FREE:

  • TV’s & Flat Panel TV’s
  • Computers & Laptops
  • Monitors
  • Hard Drives
  • Keyboards, mice, speakers & other peripherals
  • Printers, Copiers, Scanners, Fax Machines
  • Stereo EquipmentVCR / DVD / CD Players
  • Cell Phones, Telephones, Cameras
  • Microwaves, Toasters 

Please: NO refrigerators, dehumidifiers, air conditioners, batteries, light bulbs or smoke detectors. 


A big thanks to all sponsors which make this even possible:  USM Office of Sustainability, North Coast Services, The City of Portland, Portland Sea Dogs and Troiano Waste Services.  


This is a rain or shine event.
