• We are not a computer refurbisher - We truly recycle all electronics

    By not generating revenue from usable computers, we recycle everything electronic.  We want to help you responsibly recycle your old electronics.

  • If you have computers, we will destroy your hard drives for you.

    If you have old computers laying around because the hard drives still contain data, no worries!.  We will shred your hard drives, send you a certificate of destruction, and we can even make a video of the process.  We make data security easy!

  • All of our services are FREE!

    We don’t need to charge your for pickups, or destruction like other companies.  We make our money on the back end by recycling old electronics for the metal content, and we don’t need to pass our costs forward to our customers.

Electronics Recycling and Computer Recycling Services

What is electronics recycling and computer recycling and why can’t you just dispose of old electronics in the trash?  While electronics in general are not considered a hazardous waste by the EPA (with exception to CRT’s), electronics do contain material not suitable for the landfill.  Some of the solder used in older electronics contains lead.  Circuit boards contain different types of harmful metals and materials you would not want finding their way into the soil or ground water.  The point of properly recycling this material is not only to keep it out of the environment, but once it is properly recycled, the metals and plastics can be used again in the manufacturing process.

How We Recycle Electronics

Sensible Recycling does not refurbish computers.  We offer computer recycling and electronics recycling services.  This means that our revenue is generated from dismantling electronics and all electronics generate revenue for us.  We believe refurbishing computers is a good thing as it gives people access to something they may not afford new, but this is not how our company works.  By recycling everything electronic, we can focus on doing the right thing with all the material we receive.  Some companies only want material they can re-purpose, while improperly disposing of the material they don’t want.  Would you rather have your hard drive wiped and resold to someone else, or completely destroyed so all of your sensitive data stays safe?

At Sensible Recycling we follow a no landfill policy.  We dismantle all material for recycling.  If we receive computers, we break them down to the core components removing the ram, hard drives, processors, etc.  Hard drives are shredded to ensure data security.  Once the material is dismantled or destroyed, it is then  sorted properly.  Other electronic items are broken down to the circuit boards.  Our material downstream consists of companies that follow the Electronic Recycling Coordination Clearinghouse (ERCC) standards and are R2 or E-Stewards certified, or are final processors.  Rest assured that your material is being handled responsibly.

Sensible Recycling services are always free.  We will come to you and pick up your material and bring it back to our location for dismantling.  It doesn’t matter how big or small your company is, our service is always FREE.  We make our profit from responsibly recycling the material we receive.
