Most electronics contain hazardous or toxic materials which can cause an environmental problem if discarded in the trash. Safely recycling and reusing electronics helps keep substances like lead and mercury from harming people or the environment. To manage your electronics responsibly, take advantage of take-back, reuse, and recycling programs offered by local retailers, efficiency programs, and others.
Lamp and Computer Recycling
Algoma Utilities coordinates a hazardous and recyclable materials recycling day. Items such as fluorescent bulbs, ballasts, batteries and computer components are disposed of in an efficient and safe manner. Tuesday, May 7, 2019, has been set as the recycling day for 2019.
Algoma Utilities customers may bring fluorescent lamps/bulbs, ballasts and computer components (monitors, CPUs and keyboards) to the Algoma Utilities office from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
All bulbs and ballasts must be boxed, closed and taped to secure the materials. Quantities must be written on the outside of the box. Please have the terminals taped on all batteries. Algoma Utilities reserves the right to deny acceptance of any material. Customers will be charged a disposal fee for the materials they bring in to be recycled. Prices are subject to change.
