Electronics Can Be Recycled

Don't let your e-waste contaminate our landfills

Got Old Electronics?

Electronics contain valuable metals but can also contain hazardous materials as well. If we don’t recycle the materials inside electronics, we will contaminate the environment with hazardous materials. Electronics can be dismantled and the materials can be recycled and reused in new products or materials.

Waste Diversion is a leading provider of recycling services for old electronics and other hazardous and hard to recycle waste streams. We can remove those unwanted electronics and make sure to recycle them so they don't end up in landfills. We focus on safety, cost-effectiveness and speed.

Why Recycle Electronics?

Electronics contain valuable metals such as:

  • Gold
  • Silver
  • Copper
  • Aluminum
  • Steel
  • Platinum
  • Zinc
  • Lithium

Mining of raw materials, which are used to produce these electronics can cause damaged habitat and an increased release of GHG emissions into the air and the environment. Televisions, laptops/computers, smartphones and monitors can also contain hazardous materials such as mercury, cadmium, and lead. It is important to keep the hazardous materials away from our landfills while extracting the valuable metals to help our environment. It is even more important knowing that the lifecycle of electronic products are getting shorter and consumers are abandoning older products for new ones at an increasing rate.
