Recycling your e-waste is a good thing
Throwing away e-waste is a bad, bad thing. RecycleWorks has decided to make it easy for communities to get rid of their e-waste in a responsible manner.
90% of all e-waste is reusable, which can save material and scarce resources in the manufacturing process. That’s a great thing considering rapidly developing technology makes many electronics obsolete after just 18 months.
Recycling e-waste keeps some pretty nasty and downright hazardous materials like lead, mercury and arsenic, out of our landfills and ecosystem.
Free e-waste drop off
Most homes and businesses have it, but don’t know how or where to get rid of it—electronic waste.
Here’s your chance…
RecycleWorks offers free e-waste recycling drives around the KC Metro area for:
- Apartment complexes
- Businesses (office parks and large corporations)
How it works:
- Call to schedule a collection day
- We provide a truck staffed with trained collection specialists
- Simply drop off unwanted electronics at the designated collection site
- We haul it away free of charge* and see that it is recycled responsibly
*Small ($10) fee for each CRT or LCD monitor.
What can we take?
If it has lights, buttons or cords, we’ll take it:
- Cell phones/PDAs/Pagers
- Batteries (Lithium and car batteries only)
- All computers & equipment
We’ll do our part.
Every piece of e-waste we collect is recycled domestically by certified third-party facilities that properly handle 100% of the materials—from plastic and glass to precious metals and hazardous materials.
Plus we make it easy and free for you to do your part.
Since there are strict standards for dumping electronics, it’s never a good idea to just put it in your regular trash. But finding a proper e-waste disposal site can be time consuming and expensive. And with new technology as affordable as old, there isn’t much garage sale value for any of it. That leaves you looking for the best way to get rid of it…
