How do you recycle electronics?

Collect, Process, Refine

Electronics Recycling is about getting items to their original state as a raw material. Any electronic that needs to be recycled goes through a testing phase to see if there are components that can be reused. Any items that are not working are prepped to be ultimately refined. In every electronic there is Plastic, Copper, Gold, Metal and so much more.

Some uses after refining:

SMART HOME

AUTOMOTIVE

MULTIMEDIA
