Electronics Recycling Event at Indiana Government Center

To help keep electronics out of landfills and to celebrate America Recycles Day, IDEM is partnering with Technology Recyclers to host two E-Waste collection events at the Indiana Government Center. The collection events, held on November 12 and November 17 at 7:00 AM to 1:00 PM, will be open to all state employees and will be held at Robert Orr Plaza. State employees can drive or walk their unwanted electronic items to Robert Orr Plaza where staff from Technology Recyclers will collect these items. For a contactless delivery, please stay in your vehicle and staff will unload your unwanted electronics. If you choose to walk to the event to drop off materials, please practice social distancing by staying six feet apart from others and wearing a mask.
