The Process of Recycling Electronics
The waste of obsolete electronic products that is commonly called “e-waste” is vast and growing, with estimates of 50 million tons per year generated worldwide. Many of these products contain hazardous chemicals and materials that must be handled responsibly.
All Green is a collector and a recycler. This means that we not only come to your business or home and pick up your old electronics, but we also ensure that all of the material we collect is processed down to the basic commodities right here in North America. Most of the processing for the items we collect is conducted at our facilities in Southern California. Further processing is done at a partner facility in Northern California and the final refining process is done at a refiner in North America. Most items that we receive are manually dismantled as the first step to recovering all of the commodities. Items that cannot be dismantled in an efficient manner are put through a shredding process. Whole e-scrap or dismantled parts can be shredded down to pieces that are less than 2 inches in diameter. They can then be separated through a series of devices all connected via conveyor belts in a process that is 95% automated. The products sold include iron, copper, aluminum, plastic, glass, precious metal mix, and shredded circuit boards.
Want Equipment Refurbished?
Many electronic items given up as obsolete may still be of value after undergoing a cost-effective refurbishment. Our team of technicians tests all equipment and use our extensive inventory of parts and components to ensure inexpensive refurbishment of equipment for resale.
Want Equipment Resold?
We resell equipment only if our customers have indicated it is acceptable to do so. Responsible electronics recycling means attempting to reuse equipment prior to recycling it. We will assess the value and resale potential of all items in order to identify items that may have value on an aftermarket.
Certain items that have significant value can even be resold in order to recoup up to 70% of the value for our customers. In order to increase the value of resalable items, we often refurbish, upgrade, clean, and repackage the equipment.
Want Equipment De-Manufactured?
For items that cannot be resold whole, the best course of action is often de-manufacturing. Electronics typically contain valuable components such as power supplies, CPUs, printed circuit boards, and memory chips that can be recovered and reused. We never resell anything that contains customer information.
