Since July 2021, CCNB’s Zero Waste team has partnered with the Novato Sanitary District to provide free pickup of old electronics to all Novato residents. In July 2022, we renewed this partnership and added a second day of pickups to make this service even more accessible; now, Novato residents can request a free pick-up any Monday or Thursday of the year, excluding holidays. This partnership is made possible by funding from the Novato Sanitary District. In August 2022, our crews serviced 29 Novato households and collected just over 5,000 pounds of E-waste from Novato residents. We are extremely grateful to the residents of Novato and the Novato Sanitary District for prioritizing E-waste recycling, which diverts large amounts of material, including hazardous material, from our local landfill.

To recycle the E-waste our corpsmembers collect, CCNB partners with Electronic Recyclers International (ERI), an organization committed to providing safeguards for clients, employees, and the environment. ERI is the first company in the world to hold NAID AAA, R2, and e-Stewards certifications. This company exceeds mere compliance with the law and CCNB is proud to partner with them to ensure all E-waste has its data destroyed before it is responsibly recycled right here in California.

For pickups outside of Novato or pickups on other weekdays, you can schedule a free pick-up of E-waste by emailing our team at [email protected] or calling us at 415-454-4554.
