The RAP Center is a Snowline enterprise that salvages your recyclables, diverts material from the local landfills, saves our streams and supports the Snowline mission.

What is E-Waste?

Just about anything that runs on electricity (working or not) such as:  computers, televisions, microwaves, washers, dryers, flat panel monitors, refrigerators, freezers, broken exercise equipment, etc.

There is a $20 charge for anything with freon (i.e., refrigerators, A/C units, freezers, etc.)

What is Scrap Metal?

Just about anything made of metal such as: bicycles, wire hangers, lawn mowers, water heaters, broken cars, weights, golf clubs, old metal tools, angle iron, barbed wire, old wire fencing, motors, engines, car parts, etc.

Lawn mowers and other equipment must have fluids drained before donating.  Fencing should be rolled up.

We are sorry we cannot take everything. Following is a referral guide for those items we cannot accept.

Two Ways to Donate:

Handle all your recycling needs whether it’s e-waste or metals! Before you dump it ... donate it!!   Every donation helps the environment, the community and the compassionate work our patient care team provides to families in El Dorado and Sacramento Counties.  Our Processing Center ensures nothing goes to waste!
