Some places will have local drop off places that take the E Waste for free or even for a small fee to recycle it and dispose of it properly.
Sometimes you can also find a scrap metal yard near you that buys E Waste and then you'd get paid for the E Waste you drop off to recycle.
If there's a scrap metal yard near you then you can also get paid for recycling other metals such as copper, aluminum, brass, Tin, Steel etc.
Some scrap metal yards will take E Waste while others may not so you'd have to look around and call some scrap yards in your area to see if they accept E Waste or not.
Sometimes places will also have a program during the spring or summer to drop off E Waste so you may have to wait until spring or summer or put an ad on Craigslist stating you have some free E Waste to give away and someone who recycles electronics may want it to recycle.
