All Green Recycling is your go-to solution for electronics equipment recycling. As technology continues to evolve, many consumers are left wondering what to do with their leftover e-waste. Recycling is an excellent option as it benefits both the environment and the community at large. Also, less natural resources are used in the manufacture of electronics when old e-waste is recycled. Even if a device is no longer usable, the material can be used to manufacture new electronics.
If your old electronics have sensitive information on them, secure equipment destruction can destroy information prior to recycling.
While many households and personal PC users choose electronics donation – giving low-income families, schools, and libraries access to electronics equipment that would otherwise add to the increasing landfill problem, donation is not a viable option for businesses and organizations who have data security issues to be mindful of.
Product Recall Management
Electronics equipment recycling can be effectively used in conjunction with product recall management, facilitating the complete recall, destruction, and disposition of recalled products and equipment.

How Do You Dispose of Old Electronics?
The answer to this question largely depends on whether the electronics have ever held confidential or sensitive data. If not – for example, if the equipment is a desktop PC used solely for gaming or word processing and it is still in usable condition, your best bet would be to donate the device to someone. This allows you to help preserve resources and help your local community. If you are unsure who to donate your old device to, you could try;
- Local assisted living facilities
- Local homeless shelters
- Local employment centers/adult education
- Schools and libraries in your area
- Charities for low-income families
The above groups may have a hard time affording electronics on their own, so you would be greatly helping them out by making a donation.
If, on the other hand, the equipment was used for business purposes or sensitive home use, including internet banking, or if your old electronic device is no longer in usable condition, the best option would be electronics equipment recycling. Recycling ensures useful materials can be reused while hazardous materials are kept out of the environment. All Green Recycling is there to help you through the recycling process and take care of the entire process for you.
Can You Recycle a Computer?
Not only can you recycle computers, recycling computers is incredibly beneficial for the environment. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), every million laptops that are recycled can conserve the energy to power 3,500 United States homes for a whole year. To safely recycle your computer, there are a few steps you should take prior to recycling.
- Remove all data from a computer to ensure your data remains secure. If the computer has ever been used to hold sensitive or confidential data, remove the hard drive and arrange for it to be shredded separately.
- Back up all important information onto an external hard drive prior to recycling.
- Unplug any computer extras, such as keyboards and speakers. This will make the recycling process easier.
