For immediate release: April 22, 2021
Gallatin Solid Waste Management District and 406 Recycling are hosting the annual free electronic waste collection event on Saturday, April 24 at Logan Landfill from 8 AM to 2 PM. Collected items will be processed by 406 Recycling, an R2-certified recycler, which ensures that high environmental standards are met through the entire life of the recycling process. All personal information is kept secure until it is destroyed. This is a great opportunity to recycle some of those electronic items that don’t work or are collecting dust.
Electronic items that will be accepted include: computers, monitors, printers, TVs (including CRT, LCD and rear-projection), radios, digital cameras, mobile phones, routers, scanners, fax machines, DVD players, stereos and equipment, remote controls, keyboards, microwave (clean inside and no tray), servers, tablets, VCR’s, digital clock radios and accessories and cords. If you’re not sure if something is considered e-waste, call 406-582-2493 for clarification.
Customers will need to stop at the gate before the scale house for instructions. If you have other items to dispose, normal trash rates still apply.
Logan Landfill accepts e-waste all year during regular business hours 7 AM – 5 PM Mondays through Fridays, and 7 AM – 4:30 PM on Saturdays (summer hours) for a fee of $27 per ton, with a $5 minimum for up to 400 pounds.
