Electronics Recycling

The City offers residential customers the option to schedule curbside collection of a variety of electronics items through our large item pick-up service.  


The base fee for curbside collection of all types of electronics, including one device with an electronic screen (laptops, monitors, TVs, etc.) is $20. 

Electronics include all types of computer monitors and televisions (both cathode ray tubes/CRTs and LED/plasma TVs). Other electronics such as VCRs, DVD/Blu-Ray players, audio equipment, computer towers and associated equipment, fax machines, printers, scanners, and associated cables are included in the $20 base fee with one device with an electronic screen. 

Additional devices with an electronic screen added to a collection will add $15 to the cost of that collection.

Residents are still able to drop off electronics for recycling at Dubuque Metropolitan Area Solid Waste Agency (landfill) at 101 Airborne Rd. for $15 per screen. Other non-screen electronics and accessories may be dropped off at no charge.
