Rooney Road Recycingat, at 151 Rooney Road will take them for $1.65 per pound. They are only open Saturdays and Wednesdays. You have to go to their website and schedule a drop off time, and there is no way to cancel your scheduled time if you can not make it. Not real user friendly...

I think the local Staples recycles some electronics.

Check out sustainability in Arvada. They seem to take almost everything (fees of course but reasonable). They seem a lot more user friendly than Rooney Rd in Golden.

According to their website, Staples will take electronics but not televisions. List of acceptable and prohibited items at: https://www.staples.com/sbd/cre/marketi ... ectronics/

I always go here: https://actionrecyclingcenter.com/ It's been over a year but last time....no charge and they took a couple of old computers and an old VCR.

Looks similar to the others. They take electronics but not monitors and TV's.

This is annoying if you have a TV to dispose of. People do not want landfills to have electronics anymore, however, give no real alternative. Perhaps before restricting landfills from taking these items, they should have decided what a person could do with these items at a reasonable cost.

IF you happen to be going near Boulder, I think they have the best price on recycling CRT TVs. 59 cents per pound.

If you can wait until Nov. 15, that's America Recycles Day. Usually the Amazon Treasure Truck is down at the Broncos stadium taking any and all electronics for free.
