Don't Throw it away. Recycle It!

We'll recycle your old Computers - Working or Not

What we recycle: What we do not:

IC Chips, CPUs, Cards, & Components Non Computer Related Items
We take monitor units and printers but sometime must charge a small fee
to help with cost.

  Why Recycle

  As our lands fill up with people, they fill up with trash as well. Land fills are filling up faster then the trash can decay. Land is for people, not for trash.

Computers and other consumer electronics are especially bad for land fills, listed are several reasons why. First is they have a very slow rate of decay. Second, it is estimated that over 500 million units will become obsolete this year, this alone could cause a land fill crisis. Third is the depletion of metals. And forth and most importantly is that modern electronics are made out of metals and materials that are harmful to the environment, but when recycled properly pose no harm and can be reused.

  How We Help

  Tearing the units down to bare components, we find alternative uses for the components that test good. The rest are separated by metals and then recycled as base metals and plastic. Monitor picture tubes have leaded glass in them and have to be handled with expertise, thus the need to charge a disposal fee for these.

Truth is, most companies charge a disposal fee for handling. We have found other means to pay for the handling and give you the satisfaction of knowing that you are doing something for the environment. We all realize that no one is going to get rich off of selling old computer parts for junk, but when everyone does their part, the world can be a little cleaner.

 

  Delivery or pickup

  There are at least three ways to get your old computers to us. First is you may deliver to our drop site in Lindale, Texas.
