Hazardous & E-waste

The City of Sedalia collects electronic waste (e‐waste) or e‐scrap for reuse, recycling, or disposal. The City works and is partially funded by both the West Central Missouri Solid Waste Management District and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.

The e-waste collection trailer is located at the city’s Materials Management site at 27882 Highway U. You will see the “red” 53-foot electronics waste container on your left as you enter the Materials Management site.

What is Residential E-waste?

Unwanted electronics are one of the nation's fastest-growing waste streams. Often called e‐waste or e-scrap, electronic products may contain potentially hazardous materials such as lead. These material(s) can pose a risk to human health and the environment if not properly managed or disposed of correctly. Electronic products also may contain valuable materials like precious metals that can be recovered and recycled. The recycling of electronic products provides several benefits. Beyond protecting the environment and conserving resources, recycling may also provide raw materials for the manufacturing of new products that may lead to the creation of new jobs. Additional information can be found in the E-waste Information PDF.

What is Household Hazardous Waste?

The United States EPA considers some household products to be Household Hazardous Waste (HHW). Items considered HHW are those that can catch fire, react, or explode under certain circumstances. Also considered HHW are items that are corrosive or toxic. Improper disposal of HHW, although many times not immediately obvious, can pollute the environment or pose a threat to human life. Improper disposal includes pouring them down the drain, on the ground, into storm sewers, or putting them out with the regular trash. Proper disposal methods are included in the Household Hazardous Waste Information PDF.
