  9. Where do my items get recycled?

    • ​Our recycling operation is located near Pensacola in Northwest Florida.  We recycle by disassembling and sorting various electronics and e-waste.  The resulting components are then sent to responsible and licensed partners who further process the materials for future use in the supply chain.

  10. How does your business make money if you don't charge for services?

    • ​While most obsolete electronics and e-waste have very little value in their existing state, once properly dismantled, small amounts of various metals can be recovered, which accumulate with a large volume of recyclable items received.  These metals are sorted and sold for use in manufacturing new products.  However, responsible electronics recycling is not solely about profits…more importantly it is about keeping e-waste out of landfills and finding opportunities to re-purpose materials in an effort to improve the health of our environment.
