E-Waste Recycling Services


In 2009, the state of Wisconsin passed an electronics recycling law which requires manufacturers of certain electronic devices to finance a system of collections and recycling opportunities for Wisconsin residents. No matter where you purchased your equipment from, Milwaukee PC will make sure it's properly and safely recycled. Most things are recycled absolutely free, with a few restrictions. Please see the listings below to determine if there is a recycling fee or if your items are accepted.

If you have any questions or concerns on if your items are acceptable, please click here to contact your local Milwaukee PC.

Milwaukee PC also offers an on-site pickup service of your items for businesses.  Please call for pricing.

Milwaukee PC recycles an average of over 80,000 lbs of E-Waste per year - that would add up to over 440 TONS of E-Waste since the law went into effect on January 1, 2010!  (a blue whale weighs approximately 205 tons)
