Electronic Recycling

We securely recycle and refurbish all electronics. Instead of throwing them away and potentially cluttering up landfills with non-economically friendly wastes, recycle them! At the end of the day, it's better for everyone.

We offer data destruction compliant with DoD 5220.22-M standards. CoD available via digital delivery methods upon request. If you have equipment that needs to be decomissioned, we can quickly and efficiently decomission any electronic hardware, including small datacenters.

EXCEPTIONS

The following are not accepted:
  • Cathode Ray Tube Televisions
  • Rear Projection Televisions
  • Fluorescent Tubes (The ballast and enclosures are accepted, not the tubes)

How do you keep our data safe?

We make it our goal to leave you feeling satisfied at the end of the day. We destroy all data compliant with the DoD 5220.22-M standard. If requested, we will additionally destroy the drives containing data by puncturing the drive's metal casing and later shredding it. Certificate of Destruction available upon request.

What is the DoD 5220.22-M data destruction standard?

This question has a very long answer, but in a brief summary; it is a standard set by the US Department of Defense used to guarantee that all data is securely sanitized. There are specific methods of destroying data on each type of device, the table below shows those methods.

What do you do with accepted electronics?

Depending on the request of the recycling party, they may be refurbished, after proper data cleansing. Anything else may be used for parts or broken down into core elements, which may be eventually recirculated back to manufacturers as raw materials to be used in new electronics.

Do you recycle CRT (cathode ray tube) televisions?

No. Recycling CRT devices is a process that requires a dedicated facility of its own. CRTs contain a phosphor coated, vacuum sealed glass tube, that is lined in lead, which may store a high voltage charge. The glass tube must be properly handled or the consequences may be fatal.

Do you accept fluorescent tubes?

No. Fluorescent tubes contain high amounts of phosphor and mercury. They should be disposed of by a recycler that specializes in phoshphor and mercury disposal. If you have other electronics in need of pickup, we will accept them and send them to recyclers that are capable of processing them properly.

How do I determine if my Television is a CRT television?

A CRT is distinctly recognizable from other display types by the concaive glass front, and overall cube shape. CRT displays are also significantly heavier. If you're still unsure on your display type, give us a call, we'll help you out!

Do you accept non-electronic items?

We do not accept non-electronic items. Metal scraps mixed in with electronic scrap is accepted, but we will not accept strictly metal, cans, plastics, or other recyclables.

Do you decomission large datacenters?

We will decomission any datacenter 10 full size racks or less.

How much does this service cost?

We provide standard electronic recycling services free of charge.
