As of July 1, 2007, electronic products containing a cathode ray tube (CRT) may not be placed in the garbage (Minnesota Statutes 115A.9565). A CRT contains 2 to 8 pounds of lead. Most TVs and computer monitors contain a CRT and must be recycled.
These sites will take electronic items that cannot legally be thrown away such as television and computer monitors. They will also accept fax machines, copiers, stereos, and other electronics. There will be a charge for these items. Please call each location for the most up-to-date information including disposal cost and hours of operation.
You may also take electronic items to the La Crosse County Household Hazardous Materials Facility.
