what we do
We are a full service recycler and collector specializing in electronics recycling. We offer pickup services as well as hundreds of convenient drop-off locations. Pickups are often free of charge and can be done at your convenience. We currently collect over one million pounds of electronics per month and we have the capacity to process up to 100 million pounds of recycling per year.
If it’s recyclable, we can recycle it. You name it, we smash it and send it down the conveyor belt to reach recyclable nirvana and be reborn as greener products. We do all we can in order to make your world and life more sustainable. 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.
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.
