Discarded electronics from Door County are in demand for recycling at a price

By Terry Kovarik

The outdated computer from Sister Bay or the broken VCR from Sturgeon Bay are valuable to recyclers for their precious metal content. For a fee, Door County residents can drop off broken television sets and screens, computers, cell phones and other electronics for pick-up by recyclers. Advanced Disposal President Steve Estes says that keeps large quantities of discarded electronics out of the waste stream by those who profit from salvaging what they can.



Estes says church groups and Sturgeon Bay Utilities periodically have free one-day electronic drop off sites. Advanced Disposal’s facility on Development Road in Sturgeon Bay is available year round.
