E-Waste Recycling

The City has contracted with Recycle Boise to help citizens dispose of their electronic waste free of charge. What is electronic waste? It is electronic equipment that is obsolete or no longer working. This type of equipment contains pollution and toxic materials that can leach out into the environment.

Items Accepted and NOT Accepted

The following items are accepted through the City's e-waste program:

  • Computer monitors (residential customers only)
  • Computers, keyboards and mice
  • Printers, scanners and fax machines
  • Point-of-sale equipment
  • Telephones
  • Cell/wireless phones
  • Cabling

Recycle Boise does not accept televisions, photocopiers, or black-and-white monitors at this time.

Personal Data

Participants can be assured that all hard drives will be wiped clean of any data. 100% of all hard drives received by Recycle Boise are either run through a data destroying process or physically destroyed. This ensures all customers that their personal and confidential material is safe when left with Recycle Boise.

Where to Take E-Waste

E-waste recyclable items should be taken to the City of Pocatello Sanitation Department, which is located at 1121 S 2nd Avenue in Pocatello.
