Electronic waste, or e-waste, is an increasing problem in today's computerized world. E-waste comes from an accumulation of unused equipment whether it's broken, obsolete or surplus. Since many components contain hazardous materials, e-waste can cause serious environmental damage and pollution if disposed of improperly. Environmental damage isn't the only thing e-waste creates, heavy metals and toxic materials also severly negatively impact human health. PC Recyclers is recycling a better way.
Since 2004, PC Recyclers of Idaho has been helping curb e-waste by recycling and properly disposing of computers and all related equipment. PC Recyclers provides safe recycling for all types of e-waste regardless of type or brand. Our methods and systems are constantly audited by a third party to ensure we are using the most current and appropriate recycling techniques.
And unlike others in the industry, we dismantle all of our equipment to separate out any hazardous materials. From there, all hazardous waste is shipped to EPA Approved facilities for appropriate disposal. We can ensure from beginning to end, the destruction of sensitive equipment and information, through safe EPA approved methods. We are R2 Certified which is a very extensive process to go through, and a very prestigious certification to maintain.
There are very few recyclers that can do that and show you the documentation to prove it. If you would like to see a complete document of what is required please click here.
