ERA Accepts Solar Panels as Part of E-Waste Collection Program

By electronic recycling association April 17, 2023

Solar panels are an increasingly important source of renewable power but they are also complex pieces of technology that become big, bulky sheets of electronic waste at the end of their lives. They contain toxic materials like lead that can leach out as they break down, landfilling also creates new environmental hazards. And right now, most of the world doesn’t have a plan for dealing with them once its time for disposal…which is where the Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) comes in. We will recycle your decommissioned solar panels free of charge as long as they are not broken.

The ERA is a non-profit organization committed to reducing unnecessary electronic waste by recycling and repurposing used electronics. We work with local companies to repurpose used electronics and IT equipment in a safe and secure manner. Our team works with community charities to provide repurpose computers and electronics to those in need.
