Electronics Recycling Citrus Heights Services In California
Did you know that throughout the lifecycle of a desktop computer, 81% of energy use is expended during its manufacture, instead of during its actual operation? To produce one computer and monitor, it takes 530 pounds of fossil fuels, 48 pounds of chemicals and 1.5 tons of water. Did you also know that in 2010 alone, Americans disposed of 51.9 million units of computers, and 35.8 million units of monitors? Of this, only 40% of the computers and 33% of the monitors were recycled. Recycle with All Green’s Electronics Recycling Citrus Heights Services.
Those numbers don’t even include units that remain unused and stockpiled in homes or offices. This all adds up to a ton of e-waste in the waste stream and a lot more lost the potential for resource recovery. For example, compared to disposal, the reuse and recycling of computers can create 296 more jobs for every 10,000 tons of material that were disposed of. Recycling one million laptop computers can save enough energy equivalent to the electricity used by 3,657 U.S. homes annually. One metric ton of scrap from computers contains more gold than that which could be recovered from 17 tons of gold ore. Don’t let your e-waste go to waste.

Data in Recycled Devices
IT Asset Disposition
Old laptops, computers, hard drives, and other devices contain a lot of information about you, your family and your business. While it is good practice to delete your files before putting in your electronics for recycling, it doesn’t always guarantee that all the data gets wiped out. Recycling with All Green’s stringent data destruction processes will guarantee that any residual data within your devices will be deleted securely and permanently. You don’t have to worry about data breaches or identity thefts. For the ultimate peace of mind, we also offer Citrus Heights Hard Drive Shredding. This process physically destroys the hard drive for complete and permanent disposal, making sure that the data can no longer be retrieved. We offer both off-site and on-site services, using the most advanced technology and in compliance with government regulations and industry standards.
