E-waste is a popular term for electronic products nearing the end of their useful life. Computers, televisions, DVD players, stereos, cell phones, and copiers are common electronic products. Electronic discards are one of the fastest growing segments of our nation's waste stream.
Under current regulation, these devices require special handling and can no longer be disposed of in landfills. Chino Hills residential customers can conveniently dispose of E-Waste and small electronic devices such as cell phones, old televisions and computers as part of the Bulky Item pickups, so call WM to schedule a pick-up at (800) 423-9986.
