e-waste-e-recycling-by-the-junkluggers

New York City has strict regulations on what is considered e-waste and what you may be fined for leaving on the curb by the sanitation department. Dispose of your e-waste safely and properly by giving us a call and letting us make sure your e-waste is properly disposed of or recycled.

What is considered e-waste?

E-Waste we collect for proper disposal includes:

  • discarded computers*
  • office electronic equipment like printers & monitors
  • entertainment device electronics like DVD players and handheld video games
  • mobile phones
  • television sets
  • refrigerators

*Please note that for security purposes, we do recommend that you erase any personal information from hard drives in computers that we will be removing from your home or office.

Why should I recycle my e-waste?

Electronic products are made from valuable and scarce resources, including rare metals, plastics, and glass, all of which require energy to mine and manufacture, releasing greenhouse gases into the environment. Properly recycling e-waste also conserves our limited natural resources and reduces the environmental impact associated with mining and processing new materials.

Most electronics contain components made of hazardous materials like lead, arsenic and mercury. Dumping these items in a landfill is extremely toxic to the environment. If these items are thrown out with the regular trash, they will be crushed, burned and recycled along with other materials that may be reused, but in the process, the mishandled e-waste can release harmful gases resulting in air and water pollution. Adhering by proper disposal guidelines reduces environmental and human health impacts and increases access to reusable and refurbished equipment to those who need it.

What do you do with my e-waste?

We collect and bring your e-waste to facilities that properly dispose of and recycle the component parts according to strict EPA regulations. Once it arrives at the e-recycling facility, your items are sorted by type, stripped of component parts like rare metals, glass and plastics, then each component is safely collected or melted down and recycled into new parts.
