Recycle your old computer and electronic equipment! The Capital Corporate Recycling Council is a Baton Rouge nonprofit designed to tackle the problem of
the tens of thousands of computers, cell phones, etc. that will become “obsolete” in our community. Give your stuff a second chance
at schools, non-profits, and in the community while protecting the environment. CACRC WILL ACCEPT: Computer hardware, Computer
Accessories (keyboards, mice, speakers, etc.), LCD monitors, printers, telephones, telephone systems, security systems, cell phones/bag phones, beepers, networking equipment, fax machines, circuit boards (of any type), processors, telephone and computer cable, uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS), toner cartridges, and ink jet cartridges. CACRC WILL NOT ACCEPT: televisions, stereos, CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) monitors, appliances, or furniture.
If you would like additional options for donating or recycling old computer and other electronic products go to the
EPA electronics recycling resource page.
addition to the regular curbside pick-up, the city offers a special
recycling pick-up for unbundled woody waste and bulky waste as well as
large household appliances and automobile tires.
Place, unbundled woody waste (including brush piles, tree limbs and wood waste)
at the curb. Trees cut down by contractors must be removed by the
contractor. Wood pieces and limbs should be no longer than 6 feet
and weigh no more than 100 pounds. Wood waste should be placed at
the curb for pick-up.
Place bulky items, including furniture and mattresses, at the curb on your regular
bulky waste day. Please be safe when leaving out a large or awkward item.
Appliances & Tires
Place large appliances like stoves and refrigerators, and up to four automobile tires, at
the curb on your regular regular bulky waste day. Commercial or large vehicle tires are not
accepted. Please be safe with any item likely to result in an accident.
Don’t Say Peanuts to Recycling
Looking for places to recycle packing material such as Styrofoam peanuts and
shredded paper? Try your local Mail Boxes Et., Quantum Express and other
mailing operations. Many will take these objects off your hands and keep
them out of the trash. Styrofoam peanuts also make excellent drainage
material for potted plants.
**Do NOT put garbage in bulky items as two
different trucks collect the material.
