WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR OLD CRT type TELEVISIONS AND COMPUTER MONITORS
Recycling the old CRT type televisions and monitors has become cost prohibitive. They are now going to the lined landfill. If a screen is 13 inches or less it may be placed in your trash cart so long as it does not overfill the container.
Please contact the Solid Waste Division at (307)721-5279 if you have any questions regarding e-waste disposal.
