R2 Certified Electronics Recycling Center in Washington DC
The benefits of responsible electronics recycling
- Preserves natural resources: will recover valuable resources and materials from e-scrap including metals, plastics, and glass, which can be reused to make new products, instead of extracting raw materials from the earth, which required more energy to mine and manufacture.
“For every 1 million cell phones that are recycled, 35,274 lbs. of copper, 772 lbs. of silver, 75 lbs. of gold, and 33 lbs. of palladium can be recovered." - U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
- Save energy: will absolutely save a lot of energy, reduce pollution, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
“Recycling 1 million laptops saves the energy equivalent to the electricity used by 3,657 U.S. homes in a year.” - U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
- Protects our environment: eliminates the danger of toxic chemicals from our environment.
Lead, cadmium, mercury, chromium and polyvinyl chlorides, and other heavy metals whose known toxicological effects range from brain damage to kidney disease to mutations and cancers, could end up in the water you drink or the air you breathe.

Where does e-waste end up?
When you look at the stacked up pile of old television, video game consoles, computers, cellphones, etc., you think that a trash dumpster is where they should go right ? Wrong. A trash can will not make them disappear “magically”. It is the beginning of a pipeline that leads to a local landfill, a giant e-waste scrapyard in China or a slum in Ghana.
“Remember that when you throw something ‘away,’ it doesn’t just disappear. There’s no magical place called ‘away’.”
The following is a report which first appear on Earthfix’s website, showing where most of our end of life electronics would end up. (we take no credit or responsibility for this video, all credits go to its creator)
Choose e-End for electronics recycling
When it comes to end-of-life equipment, e-End strictly adheres to internationally recognized Responsible Recycling (R2) standard to reduce electronics waste and preserve natural resources. We also strive to exceed the EPA’s standards for solid waste recycling and adhere to a zero-landfill policy for e-waste.
If it plugs into a wall, uses batteries, or looks like it could have done either at one time, we can most likely recycle it!
e-End gives everyone the opportunity to empty their storage rooms of unused electronics and have them 100% recycled.
