The City of Aspen is hosting a free electronic waste collection event on Saturday, May 21, 2022, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Marolt Housing Parking Lot located at 100 Marolt Place, Aspen.
The E-Waste Collection Event is free and open for those interested in recycling personal e-waste.
You don’t even have to get out of your car! We’ll grab it and you can go have fun without the worry of cords and plugs taking up space in the back of your mind.
Please note that this event is for personal e-waste only. If you’re a business with lots of e-waste, you can take it to the Pitkin County Landfill to be recycled for a fee.

What is Electronic Waste?
Anything with a plug or battery (computers, printers, keyboards, monitors, televisions, stereos, microwaves, faxes, VCRs, cell phones, etc.)
E-waste is NOT smoke detectors, batteries, and mercury bulbs. These are household hazardous waste (HHW). These items can contain lead and other heavy metals and should not be put in the landfill where they may leak and contaminate the watershed.
Pitkin County Landfill accepts electronics for a small fee during business hours. Pitkin County residents receive a $100 annual waste allowance.
