Q: I used to be able to recycle my TVs and Monitors for free at EWASTE+, why is there a cost now?
A: The cost associated with proper recycling of televisions and monitors exceeds the funding received under the New York State Electronics Recycling & Reuse Act (EPR Law). After several years of EWASTE+ subsidizing the costs of proper video display recycling, it is now necessary for EWASTE+ to directly charge a small fee to properly handle and recycle TV's and Monitors.
