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 $8 for each old PC monitor and $25 for CRT televisions. 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

  • According to the EPA, over 2.37 million tons of electronics, including TVs, cell phones and computer products, reach their end-of-life each year. About 25% of these devices are collected for recycling with the remainder winding up in landfills.
  • This means 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.
  • In the U.S. alone, the EPA estimates that over 47 million computers become obsolete each year. In addition to computers, devices such as televisions, computer accessories, printers, scanners, fax machines, cell phones and more are also considered e-waste.

Hazardous Materials Found In Computer and Other Electronics

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. 

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.

Monitors

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.

 Circuit boards

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.

Wires

Plastic covers of wires both inside and outside of a PC contain PBDE and PVC which, when burned, release toxic fumes.
