Electronic Waste
Electronic waste is collected for proper disposal each Monday through Thursday, and Saturday from 7:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. at 1140 Haley Road in Murfreesboro. The County provides a small crew to assist residents in unloading electronic waste. The center will accept anything with an electric cord and batteries on those days. Because of the hazardous materials in televisions and computer monitors, the County is accessed a fee per pound by the vendor, therefore this fee is passed on to customers. All other electronic devices are disposed of free-of-charge. The current fee structure for televisions and monitors is as follows:

1- 20 pounds = $5.00
21- 40 pounds = $10.00
41 – 60 pounds = $15.00
61 – 80 pounds = $20.00
81 – 100 pounds = $ 25.00
101 – 120 pounds = $30.00
121 – 140 pounds = $35.00
141 – 160 pounds = $40.00
161 - 180 pounds = $45.00
181 - 200 pounds = $50.00

Fee continues at $5.00 per 20 pound increment.

The County also hosts an oil-based paint collection twice per year on the fourth Saturday of each March and each September from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., at 1140 Haley Road in Murfreesboro. Oil-based paint only is accepted. Learn more about about the proper solidification process of latex paint.
