Electronics Recycling

Electronics Recycling Events in Sundance and Hulett will take place on September 9, 2023! Please watch our page for additional details.

In August 2022, the CCNRD held two electronic recycling events in Hulett and Sundance. These events prevent unwanted electronics from entering the landfill in Crook County or from being shipped to other countries. These events have become very popular with the residents of Crook County. The CCNRD takes great pride in providing this service with the financial assistance of the Crook County Commissioners, City of Sundance, and Town of Hulett; in 2022 sponsorships from Sundance State Bank, Powder River Energy, ONEOK, Neiman Enterprises and Pinnacle Bank were received as well to help offset the rising costs in recycling.

These events have taken place annually since 2016 with an average collection of nearly 9,000 pounds of waste per year and a total of over 61,000 pounds of electronic waste recycled!

May contain: desk, table, furniture, grass, plant, hat, clothing, person, glasses, accessories, advertisement, laptop, pc, electronics, computer, portrait, photography, head, face, summer, yard, outdoors, nature, shelter, building, architecture, cup, and poster

At the event, items are weighed, categorized, and loaded onto a flatbed trailer with the help of Protech Computing and local volunteers. Protech handles the hauling of the materials to Metech Recycling in Denver, Colorado. The electronics are dismantled and repurposed and the hazardous waste is safely disposed. Metech was chosen because they maintain E-2 certifications and utilize processes to ensure that sensitive information is secure and cannot be retrieved.

May contain: person, man, adult, male, shoe, footwear, clothing, box, glove, hat, plywood, wood, wristwatch, truck, vehicle, transportation, and car
