Recycling Center takes technotrash

The Clark County Recycling Center accepts small electronic items, such as CDs, printer cartridges, MP3 players, hard drives, flash drive, and VHS and audio tapes. There's no charge for placing items in the boxes located in our warehouse at our 1602 W. Main St. facility.

These items go to a company that provides secured, audited disposal of electronic media and recycles the resulting material to make various products.
