Electronic Recyclers


The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment does not have a permitting, certification or approval process for electronics recyclers, and does not recommend or endorse specific recyclers. High volume electronics recyclers may need to have an EPA identification number. This number is a method used to track the recycler's hazardous waste management activities. It is not a permit to recycle electronics.


Some recyclers offer a "certificate of recycling" or "certificate of destruction." This is the recycler's own certification and may include information like the amount of material accepted for recycling and their confirmation that it was processed as agreed to. While it is often good to have such a certificate for record keeping purposes, it is not a state-required or state-endorsed document.
