Electronic Waste Recycling

Beginning July 1, 2015 electronic waste will no longer be allowed in waste containers (Metro Code 10.20.095) and should be recycled. There are a number of electronic waste recycling options for residents and businesses:

  • Metro residents, with valid Davidson County identification, can bring electronic waste to the East and Omohundro Convenience Centers for recycling. Convenience Centers are for residential material only. There is no fee to recycle at the convenience center.
  • Businesses with electronic waste can contact local area e-waste recyclers.
  • A number of retail locations offer drop-off, donation & "take back" programs.
