Electronics recycling has never been easier or more important. Most electronics contain toxic metals such as lead, mercury and cadmium. If any of these contaminants get into our rivers, streams or lakes, they can harm our health and damage the environment.
Hennepin County takes electronics year-round from residents at drop-off facilities in Brooklyn Park and Bloomington.
