I never thought of Styrofoam as an electronic. Microwave, yes. Styrofoam no.
Does anyone know why washers and dryers are accepted, but kitchen electronics are not?

What about stupid nosy neighbors? Can I recycle ’em too? Thanks Windermere! Some day soon there’ll simply be neighborhood recylcing centers in all hoods, taking the place of a freindly nod like this. Just takes $$ and an entrepeneur to be able to make it, and survive the regulations etc.

Maybe this will help cut down on the idiots/jerks who are always dropping old TVs and monitors on the curb like somebody wants a free broken 20yr old CRT.

Recycle your electronics please, don’t leave toxic devices sitting on the street or in your driveway.

These restrictions are from the recycling people, they list these items on their website that they don’t accept.

As for styrofoam, most likely they don’t want people to bring their electronics in the original box. The recycler then has to pay to throw the stuff away and styrofoam can fill a dumpster pretty quick. As for kitchen appliances, I think they mean stoves and refrigerators. Some gas stoves have mercury switches and refrigerators are loaded with freon, both are waste that the recycler doesn’t want to have to pay to deal with.
