eWaste Recycling

Making the world a greener place, one electronic at a time.

Small Dog Electronics has long been concerned about its footprint on the Earth. We started recycling electronics on a small scale many years ago, but ewaste (electronic waste) has grown to be a major problem on a global scale. According to the EPA, 250 million computers will become obsolete in the next five years, due to the speed of technological advances. As such, the disposal rate of electronic material increases at an alarming pace every year.

Retail Store Recycling

Bring it to us!

Your computer and other electronics can have a life after you're ready to move on - bring it in, and we will dispose of it for you. If you live in Vermont or are in the area, we offer a recycling program through our retail stores! We're proud to offer this free service!

Buy a computer from Small Dog Electronics online, and we will recycle your old one for free!
We will take your old computer when you buy a new one, less shipping charges.

Visit the State of Vermont's Agency of Natural Resources' site to find a list of other recycling and reuse locations throughout the state.
