Free recycling for City of Menomonie, Town of Menomonie and Town of Red Cedar residents for certain electronic items.



The City of Menomonie will be hosting an Electronics Collection Event for residents of the City of Menomonie, Town of Menomonie and Town of Red Cedar on Thursday, April 25, 2024, from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm at the City of Menomonie Community Services Department Shop (621 11th Ave W/Hwy 29). The City is partnering with Dynamic Lifecycle Innovations, a registered Wisconsin E-Cycle electronics recycler, to offer this free Electronic Recycling Event. 


The following electronic items will be accepted for free: flat screen and tube TVs, projection and wood console TVs, flat screen and tube monitors, desktop computer towers, laptops and chromebooks, keyboards and mice, computer speakers, tablets, cell phones, small scale servers, DVD, VHS and Blu-Ray players, VCRs and DVRs, satellite receivers, routers and modems, desktop printers and scanners, desktop fax machines, hard drives and flash drives. Only the items listed above will be accepted for recycling. Residents may bring up to 25 items to the collection for recycling.


The City will not be accepting any other items during this collection. 


Residents of the City of Menomonie, Town of Menomonie and Town of Red Cedar can pre-register for the collection online HERE. To prevent back-ups and long wait times, please arrive on time for your scheduled appointment. Anyone arriving more than 10 minutes early or late to their scheduled appointment time may be turned away. 


Dynamic Lifecycle Innovations will be transporting and recycling all materials collected at this event. Dynamic has stringent security measures to ensure any data on hard drives and other electronic devices will remain secure. Dynamic wipes all data from electronic devices and will be providing the City with a certificate of destruction and recycling.


Please enter the collection site via Wilson Ave West, follow the signs, and remain in your car during the collection. Staff from the contracted vendor will direct you where to park and will safely unload your vehicle. 


For those ineligible or unable to attend this Electronics Collection event, free electronics recycling is also available from commercial providers including First Choice Recycling in Eau Claire (https://firstchoicerecycling.com/). 

 

Several types of electronics are banned from landfill disposal in Wisconsin, including computers, TVs, cell phones, printers, DVD players and other video players and computer accessories. Many electronics, including TVs, cell phones and laptops, are made from valuable materials that can be reused through recycling. Some electronics can contain hazardous materials like lead and mercury that can contaminate the environment and be harmful to human health if not managed properly. 


Questions regarding the collection event can be directed to Megen Hines, Environmental Program Coordinator at 715-232-2221 ext. 1005 or mhines@menomonie-wi.gov.
