The one-day electronic waste collection at Gate 1 of the 520 Tracy Blvd. facility will also accept cardboard, expanded polystyrene foam, household batteries and mercury items.
Jennifer Carigilo, of the city of Tracy Public Works Department, said residents can also dispose of small home appliances, such as microwaves, toaster ovens and coffeemakers.
Carigilo said three electronic waste recycling events in Tracy in 2012 collected 54,330 pounds of cathode ray tubes from televisions and computer monitors, along with 46,859 pounds of other electronic devices.
Two more free e-waste collections will follow on July 13 and Oct. 12 at the Boyd Service Center.
Anyone with more than 20 electronic devices to discard must call Onsite Electronics Recycling for bulk collection at 234-7994.
