TORRINGTON: Electronic Waste (E-Waste) Recycling

Electronic Waste (E-Waste) Recycling

City of Torrington residents can bring their household electronic scrap items (e-waste) to the Water Pollution Control Facility Drop-Site Recycle Center located on Bogue Road for recycling.

The e-waste recycle drop-off site is open Monday thru Friday from 7:00 am to 2:30 pm and weekends from 7:00 to 9:30 am. Proof of residency and sign-in are required.

Data Security is not included with the e-waste recycle program so residents need to take appropriate steps to properly sanitize or destroy all storage media.
