We destroy data completely and recycle e-Waste items.
As an R2 Certified recycler, we can guarantee 100% recycling of your unused electronics— which means no land filling and no illegal exporting. To provide proper processing for CRTs we use a certified processor, which charges a fee to process these CRTs. We charge a fee of $15 for each old PC monitor and $30 for CRT televisions (new fee, effective 9/17/18). This is to ensure that we can properly recycle this environmental blight, and you can rest easy knowing that your waste hasn’t ended up where it doesn’t belong.

The Dangers of e-Waste
Hazardous Materials Found In Computer and Other Electronics
PC Chassis & Plastic Shell
Hexavalent chromium is applied to steel plates for corrosion protection. Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) are used as flame retardant in computer plastics. Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) components, when burned, give off highly toxic dioxin fumes.
Cathode ray tubes (CRTs) contain approximately 4-7 pounds of lead in the radiation shielding of the glass and in lead solder on wires and connections. Barium can also be found in the glass shielding. Phosphorus is in the inside coating of the faceplate. Hexavalent chromium is applied to galvanized steel parts to prevent corrosion.
Lead solder is used to connect semiconductors and other components and wires to motherboards and integrated chip sets.Cadmium can be found in semiconductors and resistors. Beryllium is often found on boards and connectors. Printed circuit boards contain mercury.
Plastic covers of wires both inside and outside of a PC contain PBDE and PVC which, when burned, release toxic fumes.
