Today’s technological advances are moving fast, and you may be replacing electronics every 2-3 years. For this reason, e-waste is the most rapidly growing segment of the solid waste industry, leading to thousands of discarded computers, televisions, printers, and other electronics. Carelessly tossed aside, these items can contaminate the environment and pile up in landfills. What should you do with old devices taking up room in your home or business?

What is Electronics Recycling?
First initiated by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), e-cycle facilities donate, repurpose, and shred a variety of electronics. E-cycling encourages people to reduce, reuse and recycle instead of disposing electronic items in landfills. This keeps toxic metals out of the soil, water, and air while extending the life cycle of items that can be difficult or costly to produce.
Our recycling process ensures your items are securely wiped of data and repaired, sold, or donated for reuse, or have their parts separated for repurposing before shredding any remaining components. A special electrical current is used to sort non-ferrous metals by density, while precious metals are dissolved in acid, sorted, and smelted into ingots. We then separate and sell any residual glass or plastic. In most cases, this enables us to recycle the entire device, meaning nothing ends up in the landfill.
