The City of Rocklin is offering residents an easy way to dispose of u-waste (universal waste) at convenient drop-off locations throughout the City. 

To protect the environment, California has made it illegal to dispose of “universal waste” in the trash. These universal waste items must be disposed of in approved locations.

Computers & computer peripherals
Telephones & answering machines
Radios, stereo equipment, tape players/recorders & phonographs
