Electronics Recycling El Dorado Services In California
Rapid advancements in technology and increasing demand for new products have contributed to the accelerating generation of end-of-life electronics and the continuing depletion of natural resources consumed in the mining and manufacturing of new materials. But all is not lost. Proper and responsible recycling of e-waste allows us to conserve our irreplaceable natural resources and avoid the pollution caused by manufacturing new products. The EPA reports that for every one million mobile phones recycled, 35,000 pounds of copper, 772 pounds of silver, 75 pounds of gold, and 33 pounds of palladium can be recovered! All Green is proud to contribute to that endeavor through our Electronics Recycling El Dorado Services.

El Dorado Electronics Recycling
The County of El Dorado (Spanish meaning “Golden One”) is located in east-central California and is known for being the site that sparked the California Gold Rush. In 1848, the news of James W. Marshall’s gold discovery in Sutter’s Mill brought an influx of around 300,000 people to the region, each hoping to stake their claim and make a fortune. More than 750,000 pounds of gold were extracted during the Gold Rush, with mining activities peaking in 1852. As surface gold disappeared and gold became increasingly difficult to mine, new techniques such as hydraulic mining were developed, destroying much of the region’s landscape and causing damage to the environment.
Fast forward to more recent times and gold mines have now taken a more unconventional form – obsolete computers. The US Geological Survey revealed that one metric ton of computer junk contains more gold than that which could be recovered from 17 tons of gold ore. It further highlights the importance of recycling electronics and the role we can all play in reducing waste and conserving our non-renewable natural resources. Let All Green show you how.
IT Asset Disposition
Don’t throw your old computers, phones, and IT equipment in the trash bin. Recycle your electronics with All Green and seize the golden opportunity to:
- Reduce e-waste and stop toxic substances from reaching our landfills and contaminating our soil and water supplies
- Refurbish and reuse equipment to maximize your return on investment and give back to the community
- Recycle valuable components and precious metals for a more sustainable future
We have invested in cutting-edge E-Waste Management Solutions to ensure that e-cycling is done without any harsh impact on the environment. Whether you leave your old IT equipment in one of our many drop-off locations or request us to pick them up, you can be assured that our certified recycling facility will determine the most practical and eco-friendly way to dispose of these items. For example, if electronics can be repaired and refurbished, these are remarketed at the best rates or donated to charitable institutions.
Those identified for scrapping are disassembled, shredded, and separated so that materials like plastic, glass, and precious metals can be recovered for further processing by partner companies and other responsible recyclers. None of the materials will end up thrown in landfills, burned in incinerators, or dumped in other countries.
Safe and Secure
While the valuable components of your electronic waste will be recovered, you can be assured that none of the residual data on your devices will be. We have the best technology in place to securely and permanently delete any leftover data from your hard drives and other storage devices. For those containing classified or sensitive data, we also offer hard drive shredding services to eliminate any security risks for good. You don’t have to worry about the possibility of your data ending up in the wrong hands and being mined for malicious purposes.
