Electronics Recycling FAQs

Electronics recycling is the separation of components and raw materials of outdated or unused electronics. While there are other ways to dispose of unwanted I.T. assets recycling your business hardware is the best way to promote an environmentally-friendly reputation within your industry.

Many types of electronic equipment can be recycled including computers, laptops, tablets, smartphones, televisions, monitors, printers and other peripherals. Smaller components such as circuit boards and batteries may also be accepted for recycling.

Data destruction can take form in 3 primary ways:

1.) Clearing

2.) Purging

3.) Destroying

The method used depends on the device, data, and future life of the asset.


Electronics recycling offers a number of benefits, including:

  • Reuse of valuable materials that would otherwise have gone to waste.
  • Reduction in energy consumption associated with the manufacture of new electronic components.
