Posted on 02/19/2021

To better serve the community and provide access to as many residents as possible, the city of Aurora’s 2021 e-cycling events will be held at Techno Rescue—the city’s e-cycling partner—at their Aurora facility.

Special event pricing for electronics recycling for Aurora residents and nonresidents will be available on the following dates:
March 1 to 13
April 26 to May 8
Aug. 30 to Sept. 11
Dec. 27 to Jan. 8

The facility is located at 3251 Lewiston St., Suite 10. During event dates, Techno Rescue will be open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

Most electronic items—desktop computers, laptops, cell phones, tablets, gaming equipment, consumer electronics and similar—are accepted. A fee of $5 will be charged per household/vehicle.

To address the rising costs associated with processing select electronics, the following additional fees will be applied to recycle these items:
Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) monitors: $5 each
Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) monitors and most televisions 21 inches and under: $25 each
CRT monitors and most televisions 22 inches and over: $50 each
Floor model printers: $50 each
Projection, Digital Light Processing (DLP) and Console televisions: $100 each

CRT TVs with exposed and/or broken tubes will not be accepted, nor will appliances that contain refrigerant or coolant. Batteries, light bulbs, thermostats, smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors also will not be accepted. For a complete list of items that will not be accepted, visit AuroraGov.org/Recycle.

Techno Rescue, which is certified for electronics recycling and data destruction, wipes and physically destroys all data storage media to protect the identities of those who are recycling responsibly.

As a reminder, electronics tossed in the trash not only cause serious environmental problems, but also are banned from landfills in Colorado. The city of Aurora’s e-cycling events are supported by Environment Aurora, a citywide effort to think green. For more information, visit AuroraGov.org/Recycle.
