Most People Aren’t Recycling E-Waste

DSC00365When you get a new computer or smartphone, what do you do with the old one?  According to a recent report, only 20 % of people in the US are recycling it.

Those old devices could just be sitting in a closet or basement. Sadly, many people just throw them out with the trash.  Not only is that bad for the environment, but bad for security.  Anyone could get that old computer and recover the information from it.

Fortunately, we offer recycling services for free.  We work with Connecting For Good in Kansas City to redistribute technology to low-income families.  If Connecting can’t use it, they make sure it’s ethically recycled using proper and safe techniques.

If you’ve got old stuff lying around, give us a call, send us a text, or write us an email. We’ll help you recycle it instead of leaving you as one of the statistics in that report.
