To responsibly dispose of your televisions, computer monitors, and other consumer electronics, please bring them to the Recycling Center Monday – Friday, 9:00 am – 6:00 p.m. – no appointment needed!
Jackson Community Recycling (JCR) requests that businesses pay the full cost of electronic waste recycling and asks residents to pay as much as they can toward the recycling costs. JCR’s cost for shipping and processing electronic waste is 40 cents a pound. Jackson Community Recycling will not turn residents away if they can't pay for electronic waste recycling.
JCR receives grants for electronic waste recycling from the Teton Conservation District and the Brinson Foundation. These grants help subsidize the cost of e-waste recycling for those who cannot afford to pay the full price.
Jackson Community Recycling accepts electronic waste year round.
On March 18, 2003, the Teton County Commissioners passed a resolution banning hazardous waste from the Teton County Trash Transfer Station. Banned items include, but are not limited to TELEVISIONS, COMPUTER MONITORS, and FLUORESCENT BULBS.
Electronic wastes contain various hazardous materials, including lead, mercury, cadmium and other heavy metals. For example, cathode ray tubes in computer monitors and televisions contain an average of five to fifteen pounds of lead – depending on the model. When electronic waste is disposed of in a landfill, the toxic substances can leach into the groundwater causing contamination that is harmful to humans, wildlife and domestic animals.
