  • Robot vacuums – e.g. Roomba
  • Carpet cleaners
  • Floor scrubbers and polishers
  • Wet-hard floor cleaners
  • Robotic pool cleaners
  • Steam mops

Special instructions

  • Remove any vacuum dust from the cleaner before bringing it to a drop-off location.
  • If you take electronics to a landfill and bring other garbage in your load, landfill charges will apply.
  • Some restrictions apply. For full details, see Electronics Recycling program.
