Electronic Waste Collection

Electronic waste (E-waste) is an item such as a computer monitor, television, cell phone or other like materials. Due to the high amounts of lead and chemicals found in E-waste, they are not allowed in local landfills. Since February 2006, homeowners have not been allowed to dispose of E-waste in the trash.  CR&R will pick up E-waste for Canyon Lake residents at no charge. Call our Customer Service department to arrange a pick-up at (800) 755-8112.
