Recycling

Now more than ever it’s important we properly recycle electronics.

Upon dropping off your old or broken electronics, we first wipe the machines clean of any data, protecting any sensitive information that may have been left. Our NAID AAA-certified process follows NIST 800-88 standards and requires us to adhere to strict security policies at all times. Once data has been wiped, we try to give the equipment a second life through one of our various sales channels. We will either sell or donate to charity any equipment received to help offset the expense of our recycling processes.

Equipment unable to be sold in the secondary market is broken down into raw materials. Those materials, which include aluminum, copper, glass, gold, iron, platinum, steel and tin, are then sent to downstream processors to be refined and eventually turned into new goods. Additionally, our world-class recycling operations and facilities allow us to safely remove and keep toxic materials out of the environment.
