Laptop Recycling Services

Laptops contain valuable materials and precious metals that can be recovered and reused in the creation of new electronics. Recycled metals decrease the need to mine and process raw ore from the ground, reducing harmful pollution and emissions from the mining and metallurgy process. Laptop recycling helps to conserve our natural resources, save energy, and prevent laptops from ending up in landfills.

Choose ShredTronics to not only declutter your space but also to make a positive impact on the environment by responsibly managing the lifecycle of your electronic devices.

How Does Laptop Recycling Work?

Laptop recycling is made easy with pickup, mail-back, and drop-off options. Once received, our reputable recycling providers will dismantle and salvage the parts and materials of your laptop. The process will vary based on the technologies used, but we will ensure our methods provide efficient separation of materials to maximize the use of the recovered materials. 

Recycling is critical in the reduction of e-waste and protecting the environment. The process safely disposes of hazardous materials and allows valuable components to be used again.  

Here’s how it works: 

  1. Schedule a time for pick up or drop off your laptops at your local recycling center
  2. Your laptops will be tested for reuse and refurbished if possible. If not, they will be disassembled. All hazardous materials will be removed and disposed of in compliance with the EPA. 
  3. Your laptop equipment will be fed into a shredder and torn into pieces to begin the process of separating the plastic from the metals, glass, and other commodities.
  4. Magnets, eddy currents, and infrared cameras will separate the iron, steel, aluminum, and copper. 
  5. You will receive a certificate of destruction when the recycling process is complete with a mail-back or pickup service. Only a pickup or mail-back service will provide this.

The Benefits of Laptop Recycling

Electronics and laptops that are thrown away cause serious environmental and health hazards. Toxic materials like lead, chromium, and flame retardants have been connected with kidney damage, birth defects, and other health complications. 

Laptop recycling benefits the community with improved health of the environment by preventing harmful elements from entering the air, soil, and water. It also reduces required landfill space and conserves raw materials. Laptops that can be refurbished offer affordable technology and a greener solution to manufacturing new models. 

In addition to protecting the environment, you will be protecting your confidential data. One gigabyte on your laptop is equal to 10,000 documents. Recycling your laptop ensures that this data can’t be recovered, even when the materials are made into new devices. You will feel confident in your choice to recycle old laptops with our reliable and trusted recycling services.
