How to dispose of a Glowforge

I have a damaged Glowforge that will need to be disposed of, and I know that there are materials/chemicals/gases in these units that are hazardous. Anyone know exactly what hazardous materials are involved? Our county has an annual hazardous waste collection day but I’ll need to tell them what’s in this thing so they can toss it into the correct bin. Does Glowforge take back damaged units to inspect or dispose of?

Thanks!

Why don’t you get it repaired instead of disposing of it?

Agree with @ben1, you need to let them take a look at it.
(For the support team…there are photos of the damage here.)

I’m sorry to hear your Glowforge was damaged. I see you already emailed us about this and we’re working on it there, so I’m going to close this topic.
