    What is Electronics Recycling?

    Within the last three decades, the increasingly widespread use of computers, cell phones, tablets, and Android devices has created the need for a specialist industry: Electronics recycling. Simply put, electronics recycling is a multi-step process that involves the shredding of data and stored personal information, the destruction of the equipment, and the recycling of reusable components and materials. Since the 1990s, e-recycling has been practiced worldwide as a way to dispose of unused electronics, provide commercial/personal data protection and reuse/repurpose electronics components and materials.

    In e-recycling, electronics are disassembled, and all data removed and shredded to ensure privacy. Reusable components are then recovered and separated for repurposing and recycling. These include materials such as plastics, metals, and glass, as well as precious metals such as platinum, palladium, silver, and gold — rare metals that are especially sought after in a variety of today’s industries. While many of these materials are reused in electronics manufacturing, they’re also used in other industries as well.


    Through our innovative computer recycling methodologies, we offer the most secure and reliable end-of-life practices in the industry. Our state-of-the-art technology shreds and separates material and other proprietary products into two-inch pieces.

    Our certified processes meet NIST 800-88 for secure destruction of data containing devices. View the complete list of recyclable electronic items that we accept.
