Recycling & Waste


Legal Considerations

It is illegal to place microwaves in the trash.​ State law requires appliances to be processed to remove hazardous components prior to recycling the scrap metal.


Bring microwaves to one of the recycle companies listed below. Call to verify items accepted, hours and fees.

You can also bring microwaves to Washington County's Environmental Center (Ramsey County residents can use this center for free.)
