Capacitors are important pieces of electrical equipment as they have the capability of storing electrical charges within themselves. These capacitors can be reused and recycled by facilities to serve your community.
Here is how you can recycle a capacitor:
- Visit your Environmental Protection Agency or search for their website online. Contact them to help find an electronics-recycling program that will benefit the society.
- If you fail at locating one, contact your local government. Most governments have a department or a center, which deals with different environmental affairs.
- Contact your garbage disposal service so that you can ask them about the different electronics recycling methods. Usually, these services have lists of the different ways for the public to recycle electronics.
- Get in touch with the local charities. These charity centers are usually interested in taking unused capacitors for their retail and job-training divisions.
