Electronic Waste

Electronic Waste

A pile of used electronic.

The San Jose Conservation Corps helps keep thousands of computers, laptops, televisions, cell phones, and other electronics — known as ‘E-waste’ — out of landfills each year. We provide easy pick-up and drop-off services year-round for businesses and residents. All E-waste collected is responsibly recycled or reused.

Community Drop-Off

Bring us your E-waste! Businesses and residents are invited to drop off their electronic waste five days a week at the front main entrance of our Berger Drive Campus. Please check in with our staff at the front desk.

E-waste Drop-off

Pick-up Service

We provide free pick-up of electronic waste for residents and businesses that have at least three or more qualifying E-waste items.

Qualifying items include televisions, monitors, computer towers, laptops, and servers. We will also accept other E-waste items at the time of pick up, but require the three qualifying items in order to conduct the pick-up free of charge.

For pick-up requests that do not meet the qualifying criteria, we can provide pick up service for a $25 charge. Cash only. We also welcome you to drop-off your E-waste items free of charge at our community drop-off sites.

To request a pick up, please complete the form below.
