Recycle your obsolete models at the Fort Bragg Recycling Center!

Electronics contain many recyclables including plastic, glass and metal. Electronics also contain heavy metals, chemicals and other materials that can potentially harm the environment and public health when they are not properly discarded. Furthermore, certain electronics are banned from disposition in landfills in North Carolina.

The Fort Bragg Recycling Center accepts personal electronic equipment that runs on batteries or cords. Accepted items include televisions, computers and monitors, computer peripherals, keyboards, printers, scanners, cables and wires, telephones, cellular phones, video games and game systems, CDs, DVDs and small kitchen appliances with the exception of refrigerators, washers, dryers, dishwashers and other white goods.

If you wish to recycle a computer, please first remove the hard drive.

The Fort Bragg Recycling Center is located on the northwest corner of Butner Road and Reilly Road, across from the Fort Bragg Veterinary Clinic and just prior to the entrance to Pope Army Airfield. Hours are Monday through Friday, 7:30 AM until 4 PM.

The Fort Bragg Recycling Center does not accept government issued items. Government issued electronics should be relinquished to Defense Logistics Agency Disposition Services.
