PUHI — Resource Recovery Solutions, the operator of Puhi Metals Recycling Center, accepts e-waste at no cost to residents and businesses.

This service is offered during the center’s regular hours of operation, Monday to Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 3951 Puhi Road.

PMRC accepts televisions, laptops, desktop computers, printers, audio and video equipment, and gaming devices. Additionally, the center accepts satellite dishes and systems as well as small household appliances such as toasters, blenders, coffee makers, hair dryers, vacuum cleaners and more.

“We are pleased that residents and businesses have access to free e-waste recycling six days a week, thanks to our partnership with Resource Recovery Solutions,” said Acting County Engineer Lyle Tabata. “This allows the public to conveniently recycle their old electronics, keep toxic waste out of our landfill and preserve our resources for future generations.”

The e-waste is packed on site and shipped to IMS Electronics Recycling in Poway, California, where it is disassembled and separated for recycling.
