 Microwaves can be recycled with your electronics OR with your scrap metal. 

If you choose to put your microwaves with your scrap metal,  CAPACITORS MUST BE REMOVED. According to NRRA's metal vendor,  in addition to environmental concerns, capacitors can store energy and are fire hazards in scrap piles and dumpsters. If you choose to put your microwaves with your electronics, capacitors do not have to be removed.
