Our Spring 2022 Electronics recycling, medicine disposal, and paper shredding event
April 30 from 8am-2pm 
Harrison High School, 5701 N 50 W, West Lafayette

Our bi-annual e-waste event now includes paper shredding and medicine disposal!  We will be at Harrison High School this year in the front parking lot. 

Electronics Recycling: Tippecanoe County residents may bring in electric and electronic devices such as TVs, computers, laptops, vacuum cleaners, printers, etc. for recycling at no charge. We will NOT accept items with refrigerant such as AC units, refrigerators, dehumidifiers, or freezers.

We will NOT accept large appliances such as washing machines or stoves. Those can be recycled at Oscar Winski Scrap Metal at 2407 N 9th St. All attendees must show proof of Tippecanoe County residency to receive free service. If you cannot show proof of Tippecanoe County residency, you will have to pay the regular fees for e-waste with Oscar Winski.

Paper shredding: A paper shredding truck will be on-site to accept up to two banker boxes of paper to shred and recycle from each car. Just pull up, dump your box in the bin, and that's it! Paper clips, staples, folders, and file tabs are A-OK! Please remove binders and alligator clips.

Medicine take-back: The Tippecanoe County Sheriff's Department will also be here to accept any unused or expired medicines. Over-the-counter and prescription (including controlled substances) are accepted. All of your medicines will be destroyed and disposed of safely. We will not take liquids, needles of any kind, insulin, or powders.

We will have volunteers on hand to unload your electronics. Please have them packed in your vehicle in an easy-to-unload manner so that we can keep the line of cars moving.

String Light Recycling

During the month of December 2021 and January 2022 Tippecanoe residents will be able to drop off broken string lights to be recycled for free! There are drop-off bins in the lobby of the County Government Building, in the lobby of the south entrance to Lafayette City Hall, and in the lobby of the West Lafayette City Hall. Big thanks to Oscar Winski e-Recycling, Tippecanoe County, the City of Lafayette, and the City of West Lafayette for collaborating to host these drop-off sites and get your string lights recycled! If your string lights are attached to plastic decorations, please remove those and put the plastic in your trash. We are unable to recycle plastic decorations, only string lights!
