Certain electronic devices are banned from landfills in Illinois under the Consumer Electronics Recycling Act. These devices are: computers (laptop and desktop), computer monitors (all technology types), ​computer keyboards & mice, ​​televisions (all technology types), ​fax machines, printers, scanners, VCRs, DVD players, portable digital music players, video game consoles, cable boxes, satellite receivers, digital converter boxes, and small scale (non-commercial) servers.
