Earlier this week the Baltimore County of Public Works and Transportation announced an expansion of Baltimore County’s electronics recycling program.

Through a partnership with Securis, a leading electronics recycling firm, Baltimore County will be able to recycle a more comprehensive range of electronics. This includes harder to recycle items like CRT televisions, hard drives, and flat-screen monitors.

“This expansion reinforces our ongoing commitment to environmental health in Baltimore County and ensures that these complex waste products are kept out of our landfills and recycled responsibly and efficiently,” said Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski. “We encourage all residents to reduce their own e-waste by taking advantage of this enhanced service and helping to keep our communities clean and green.”

The partnership will give residents of Baltimore County the ability to help divert e-waste from landfills and recycle more modern technology like droves, smart watches, bathroom scales, heart monitors, power tools, and more.

“With this expansion, we’re making a robust leap forward in our recycling efforts,” said Department of Public Works and Transportation Director D’Andrea Walker. “We’re not just addressing the issue of conventional electronic waste; we’re staying ahead of the curve. It’s about more than just managing today’s waste, it’s about anticipating and preparing for tomorrow’s challenges. This is how we create a sustainable, responsible future for Baltimore County.”
