  • What happens to my electronics after I recycle them?

    After you recycle your electronics with us we dismantle them by hand. Check out our How It Works page for more information.

  • Why is it important to securely destroy data?

    The privacy and confidentiality of your business and your customers is our priority. By ensuring you securely destroy your data, you’ll keep your business’ and customer’s sensitive information private, while also keeping your reputation secure!

  • Why are electronics especially dangerous in a landfill?

    Electronics in landfills harm the environment in a variety of ways:

    • Soil contamination. E-waste contaminates the soil with heavy metal and other organic compounds, directly impacting the environment and human lives.

    • Runoff contamination. When the contaminants in the soil get into our water via snow or rain it impacts water quality, and other plants and animals who come into contact with the water.

    • Negative impact on streams and wildlife. When e-waste contaminants get into our streams and other water sources, we compromise the environment for the abundance of wildlife we have living both beneath and above water.

  • What sort of items contain freon?

    Fridges, freezers, air conditioners, office water coolers, commercial deli coolers, etc. These items have a $30 recycling fee to cover the additional costs of removing the freon from the units.

  • What sorts of items do you NOT take?

    We do not accept furniture, unless it contains 70% metal or more. We also do not accept traditional recyclables such as bottles (we do take cans), cardboard, styrofoam and mattresses. For more on what materials we accept, check out our How It Works page.

  • Any place that I can get rid of 6 broken lawnmowers for free gets five stars in my book haha. I went there and only saw one guy and he stopped and helped me un load everything. I warn it is down a dead end street that is surprisingly busy, you pull in (back in if you can) and pull as close to the unloading area as you can. He did state you have to be with in the gate or else he can't take it(?) But other then that, it's a great place to get rid of junk for free.

  • These guys are awesome. I had to get rid of some metal patio furniture and an old laptop. Two people showed up to unload, they were super nice and helpful. Great business that reduces stuff going to landfills. Their dropoff service is free, pickup has a charge. Note: check their website for hours and stuff they do not recycle, like wood.
