While most people would agree that recycling your electronics is a good thing, from time to time people tell us that they’re worried about various aspects of the service. We’d like to address a few of those issues here, so you can see that you have nothing at all to worry about!
Cost/hassle: Are you thinking that you’re going to have to pay to have your electronics recycled or that it’s going to be an ordeal to recycle them? Relax. With the exception of a small fee for CRTs, our services are free. We will even pick up your unwanted items for free if you have 5 computers (laptops, desktops, or servers), or you can drop them off any weekday and we will even help unload them.
Data privacy: Are you hesitating to recycle your old computer because you don’t want anyone accessing your private data? No worries! We immediately erase your old data with a NIST/DOD-compliant erasure and even offer a certificate of destruction so that you can be secure in the knowledge that it was done and done right.
Where your items end up: Are you worried that your unwanted electronics will either end up in a landfill or be shipped to a foreign country. Rest assured, we are a licensed and registered electronics recycler. Many of the items you donate are reused. For those that are recycled: We practice downstream tracking and hold our downstream vendors to the highest standards of processing and recycling. All processing happens here in the U.S. — much of it here in the Midwest.
