What Can Be Recycled at ACE Recycling

ACE Recycling can process most electronic equipment with little to no waste and at no cost. The general rule of thumb is: if it has been plugged in at one point in its life, it can be recycled.  If the device you wish to have recycled is not listed below, that does not mean we cannot recycle it.  We are happy to answer questions about specific equipment. Please send us a message or call us.

There is no appointment needed for electronic waste drop-off and no fee** for recycling. Drop-off anytime between Monday – Friday, 8 AM and 4 PM.  Thank you for your partnership in protecting our local environment.
