RecycleYourCity is the fastest most efficient way to recycle all of your unwanted material from paper and plastic to televisions, phone systems, computers, washers and dryers. I started in the recycling business in 2007. Fortunately, I linked up with one of the largest recycling companies in California. I noticed a need to strengthen the exposure with the public by improving communication of how and where to recycle unwanted items. RecycleYourCity partnered with several recycling centers and the largest junk removal company in Orange County to help local residents and businesses dispose of all unwanted hazardous and non-hazardous items. Together we targeted the mortgage industry. We contracted with lien holders to dispose of discarded items from foreclosed houses and office buildings. While sorting through the items, we found valuable material for RECYCLING. We also discovered that there were very limited locations where we could take these items. RecycleYourCity has over 50 years of recycling experience at your fingertips!

E-waste is an informal yet popular name for electronic products nearing the end of their “useful life.” Computers, TVs, VCRs, stereos, copiers, and fax machines are common electronic products. Many of these products can be reused, refurbished, or recycled. Unfortunately, electronic discard is one of the fastest growing segments of our nation’s waste stream. This definition includes used electronics which are destined for reuse, resale, salvage, recycling, or disposal. Others define the re-usable (working and repairable electronics) and secondary scrap, steel, plastic to be “commodities”, and reserve the term “waste” for residue or material which was represented as working or repairable but which is dumped or disposed or discarded by the buyer rather than recycled, including residue from reuse and recycling operations. Because loads of surplus electronics are frequently commingled, several public policy advocates apply the term “e-waste” broadly to all surplus electronics. The United States Environmental Protection Agency includes discarded CRT monitors in its category of “hazardous household waste” but considers CRTs set aside for testing to be commodities if they are not discarded, speculatively accumulated, or left unprotected from weather and other damage.
Electrical waste contains hazardous but also valuable and scarce materials. Up to 60 elements can be found in complex electronics. In the United States, an estimated 70% of heavy metals in landfills come from discarded electronics.
We are committed to the preservation of the environment. We take your old and unwanted electronic devices and in return you get all that free space you’ve been wanting in your closet, garage and home. We make it even easier on you with our ultra convenient drop off and pickup services.
