Did you receive new electronics for the holidays?

Recycle your obsolete models at the Fort Bragg Recycling Center.

Electronics contain many recyclables including plastic, glass and metal. Electronics also contain heavy metals, chemicals and other materials that can potentially harm the environment and public health when they are not properly discarded. Furthermore, certain electronics are banned from disposition in landfills in North Carolina.

The Fort Bragg Recycling Center accepts personal electronic equipment that runs on batteries or cords. Accepted items include televisions, computers and monitors, computer peripherals, keyboards, printers, scanners, cables and wires, telephones, cellular phones, video games and game systems, CDs, DVDs and small kitchen appliances with the exception of refrigerators, washers, dryers, dishwashers and other white goods.

If you wish to recycle a computer, please first remove the hard drive.

The Fort Bragg Recycling Center is located in Building 3-1240 on the northwest corner of Butner and Reilly roads, across from the Fort Bragg Veterinary Clinic and before the entrance to Pope Field. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. until 4 p.m.

The Fort Bragg Recycling Center does not accept government issued items. Government issued electronics should be relinquished to Defense Logistics Agency Disposition Services.
