Q. Why should I recycle my electronics?

A. Recycling protects the environment and preserves natural resources. In many states, such as Illinois, it is illegal to landfill electronic devices and fines are imposed for doing so. Electronics contain metals and plastics that can be recovered for manufacturing. Printed circuit boards found in all electronics, batteries, cathode ray tubes (CRTs) from video displays, and mercury lamps from video display devices contain hazardous substances such as lead, cadmium, lithium, mercury, chromium, etc. These substances can pollute our environment when disposed of into the waste stream instead of recycling.

Q. What electronic devices do you accept?

A. We accept a large variety of electronics. Please take a moment to review a list of our Accepted Electronic Devices.
