Next year the village should arrange for drop off of old microwaves. There is only ONE place in the whole greater Milwaukee area that will accept microwaves, and it's in Oak Creek. Microwaves contain an element containing PCB, and must be recycled, but I suspect they rarely are. The landfills won't accept them anymore. Stores like Best Buy will be happy to sell you a new one but won't recycle your old one like they do old computers. What are people doing with them? I doubt they are driving to Oak Creek to recycle it like we did. They are most likely ending up in landfills and leaking PCB.
