1-800-RECYCLE gets a new online database

The new webpage helps bring Ecology into the 21st century.

If you’re ready for a little spring cleaning, the Washington state Department of Ecology wants you to know they’ve revamped their 1-800 number to help you out.

According to an April 22 press release, Ecology’s 1-800-RECYCLE line has been helping state residents search for recycling drop-off services or even for collectors who will pick up your hard-to-recycle items.

But now, there’s a new online 1-800-RECYCLE database that includes 1,578 different Washington recycling services you can search for to recycle 70 different items like large appliances like dishwashers, water heaters, stoves, washing machines, and dryers.

To use the database, type in your location and the item you want to recycle, and the database will give you a service provider’s address, phone number, business hours, website, and Google Maps location, along with a full list of acceptable materials.

You can also find collectors who accept old electronics like computers, monitors, or tablets for free through our electronics-recycling program E-Cycle Washington.

Additionally, if you have mercury lights, you can find free recycling locations through our LightRecycle Washington program, the press release read.
