Electronics Recycling

The Vigo County Solid Waste Management District is proud to offer electronic recycling to Vigo County residents.

Each year the United States spends over 500 billion dollars on electronics. To reduce the amount of electronics that go to the landfill we offer E Waste Days every Wednesday. The event is from 9am-3pm rain or shine, excluding holidays.
