Computers and computer monitors have become indispensable to the strength and growth of the state’s economy and the quality of life of its citizens. Equally important is the protection of our state’s environment and natural resources. The purpose of the Oklahoma Computer Equipment Recovery Act is to establish a convenient and environmentally sound recovery program for the collection, recycling and reuse of computers and computer monitors that have reached the end of their useful lives. Below are useful links for proper disposal of used computers. Please note that this information should not be considered an endorsement by the DEQ, but is being provided as a public service.
