DMASWA Offers Electronics Recycling

June 28, 2018

Do you have an old TV, computer, VCR, vacuum cleaner or small appliance that you no longer use? Electronics and small appliances can be recycled through the Dubuque Metropolitan Area Solid Waste Agency’s Electronics Recycling Program at 14501 Highway 20 West (DMASWA Landfill). Drop off for these items is between 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. No appointment is needed. For convenience, check with your local hauler to see if they provide collection curbside for these items.

The DMASWA does not allow the burial of electronics in the landfill. Therefore, electronics cannot be placed in garbage cans/bags, dumpsters, or roll-off containers destined for landfill disposal.

Electronics recycled through the DMASWA facility are sent to a secure processing facility in Davenport. They meet international standards for reuse and recycling of collected items. The costs charged to the Agency by the Davenport contractor for this service are passed back by the Agency to its customers.

Electronics Recycling Fees:

$15.00 each              Computer monitors, TVs, and laptop computers

No Charge                All other electronics and accessories
