DONATING TECHNOLOGY AND E-WASTE

Why Donate or Recycle Electronics

Related Information?

Our Certified Electronics Recyclers page explains what it means to be a certified recycler.

Electronic products are made from valuable resources and materials, including metals, plastics, and glass, all of which require energy to mine and manufacture. Donating or recycling consumer electronics conserves our natural resources and avoids air and water pollution, as well as greenhouse gas emissions that are caused by manufacturing virgin materials.

For example:

Recycling one million laptops saves the energy equivalent to the electricity used by more than 3,500 US homes in a year.

For every million cell phones we recycle, 35 thousand pounds of copper, 772 pounds of silver, 75 pounds of gold and 33 pounds of palladium can be recovered.

What Is E-Waste?

E-waste is a popular, informal name for electronic products nearing the end of their "useful life." Computers, televisions, VCRs, stereos, copiers, and fax machines are common electronic products. Many of these products can be reused, refurbished, or recycled. With the passage of the Electronic Waste Recycling Act of 2003, certain portions of the electronic waste stream are defined and the systems to recover and recycle them will be administratively regulated beyond the universal waste rules that apply to material handling. Please refer to our regulatory information section for updates on laws, regulations, and policies affecting e-waste management, and our and our Covered Electronic Waste Recycling Program page for a detailed explanation of the program.

What should I do with my electronic discards?

The mantra of "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" applies here.

Reduce your generation of e-waste through smart procurement and good maintenance.

Reuse still functioning electronic equipment by donating or selling it to someone who can still use it.

Recycle those products that cannot be repaired. Computer monitors, televisions and other electronic equipment should NOT be disposed of with regular garbage, as this is illegal in California. To find an organization that will manage your electronics for recycling, search the directory.
