I am often asked what can be done with old computers and other electronics. You shouldn’t throw things like that away, most electronics contain some amounts of not so environmentally friendly materials. Well I have good news, you can take your old used up electronics to TECH and recycle them, free of charge! The recycling program is called e-Cycle and is a free service provided by TECH. The e-Cycle program is even available for both residential and commercial customers. TECH accepts most electronics free of charge, but there are few items that they charge a small fee for, such as old style CRT monitors. Take a look at the list below to see just some of the items that TECH accepts. Be sure to checkout TECH’s website for a complete list of items that they do and do not accept.
You don’t even have to worry about any data that is on your recycled computers. As part of TECH’s e-Cycle program, each hard drive that is received gets a hole punched in it. That renders the drive unable to be used ever. Then the drives are sold to a facility were they are shredded and recycled as scrap metal. The whole process is tracked and recorded for each hard drive that is received, to ensure your data is securely destroyed.
So if you have any old electronics lying around, don’t throw them away, take them to TECH!
