E-Waste Collection

The Village of Midlothian has established an Electronic Waste Drop Off Center at the Midlothian Fire Station II located at 14700 S. Homan Ave. E-waste drop off hours are 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM Mondays and Wednesdays and 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM on Saturdays.

Village of Midlothian partners with VetTech to collect electronic waste and other items including computer monitors, laptops, printers, computers, DVD players, stereos, video game systems, PDAs, cell phones, MP3 players, mice, typewriters, terminals, toaster ovens, hair dryers, curling irons, resistor coils, cash registers, UPS batteries, copiers or electric tools. 

The Midlothian Fire Department does not receive money from VetTech for drop offs and there is no charge to residents looking to recycle items.  VetTech Recyclers do not charge the village for e-waste collection.
