Where can I recycle non-working stereo equipment?
Question submitted on 10/12/07

The local electronics recycling programs seem to accept only computer equipment and wireless phones. I'd like to recycle a Teac bookshelf mini component system. I'm in East Brunswick, NJ 08816.


Middlesex has a permanent drop-off site for broken or outdated consumer electronic items, located at the office of Hesstech, LLC - 45 Executive Ave., Edison.

Hours: First Saturday of each month from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.; and the third Monday of each month from 12 noon - 4:00 p.m. Closed holidays and some weekends.

This service is free to Middlesex County residents (proof of residency will be requested).

Items accepted include: computer equipment (including CPUs, monitors, keyboards, scanners, modems, printers, and cables), TVs, telephones, irons, fluorescent lamps and thermostats and thermometers containing mercury.

For directions and information: Contact the Middlesex County Division of Solid Waste Management at (732) 745-4170, or e-mail

I suggest contacting them before hauling it there, just to make sure that they'll take it.
