An Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) report on the program, known as Indiana E-Cycle, shows it has expanded the availability of recycling options for unwanted, broken and obsolete electronics.

Electronics contain heavy metals, including lead, mercury, cadmium, and hexavalent chromium that can be harmful if released into the environment. However, other materials contained in the items, including steel, glass, plastic, copper, gold, tin, silicon, and aluminum, can be reclaimed by recyclers and used by manufacturers to make new products.

“Most electronics from households, public (including charter) schools, and small businesses in the state are prohibited from being discarded with the trash,” said Rick Bossingham, assistant commissioner of IDEM’s Office of Compliance Support. “Under the Indiana E-Cycle program, Indiana’s electronics manufacturers, retailers, collectors and recyclers are helping Hoosiers recycle electronics that have reached the end of their useful life.”

IDEM advises that many organizations accept donations of good used electronics; however, items that cannot be donated should be recycled. Some collectors accept items for free, while others charge a small fee for certain items. To learn about costs and restrictions, citizens can call ahead or visit a collector’s website. Citizens are also advised to ask their local recycling program about upcoming collection events in their area.

IDEM advises removing all personal or confidential information before donating or recycling your item. Many retailers offer this service for a small fee. Before donating or taking your item to a collector or recycler, ask them how they handle data security. Some collectors and recyclers may not accept hard drives.

To lessen the environmental impacts from electronic waste, or e-waste, even further, IDEM suggests purchasing quality products that can be easily upgraded and using rechargeable batteries.
