The Commission’s Electronic Demanufacturing Facility (EDF)
provides residents an environmentally sound disposal option for electronic waste (e-waste) such as computers and televisions. All material is demanufactured and, to ensure data security, is not refurbished or reused. Demanufacturing, or disassembling, involves manually breaking down equipment into its separate components prior to shredding or recycling.
The Electronic Demanufacturing Facility is Responsible Recycling (R2) certified. It is the first public agency in the world and the only agency in the state of Iowa with this certification. As of July 2012, there are approximately 239 facilities globally that hold R2 certification. Read more about this Facility's R2 certification
Some residents* and all businesses are charged 20 cents per pound for TVs, monitors and laptops. Console & projection televisions are a flat fee of $15. All other electronic waste is accepted at no charge. Large or unusual items are assessed on a per item basis. Material is accepted Monday-Friday from 7:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m. at 1048 East 59th Street, Davenport. Closed Holidays
