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 It is electronic equipment that is obsolete or no longer working.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 and into the environment.
