Did you know that each year 20 to 50 million metric tons of e-waste are disposed of worldwide, yet only 12.5% of e-waste is recycled? According to the EPA, e-waste is the fastest growing municipal waste stream in America. Every 20 minutes the US discards one ton of cell phones containing over 70 times the amount of gold and silver found in virgin ore. Urban Mining will collect your e-waste and completely tear down every item to recover valuable commodities and precious metals while diverting toxins from the environment. They also guarantee the safe destruction of sensitive data.
Accepted items include, computer equipment, computers, laptops, LCD monitors, computer peripherals, GPS devices, printers, copy/fax machines, wires, cords and cables, audio visual equipment, LCD TVs, plasma TVs, stereo equipment, game consoles, cell phones, analog phones, cameras, network servers & equipment, smart phones (iPhone & Android), tablets, Apple equipment of all types.
The only items that cannot be accepted are the old style CRT type monitors and TVs due to Federal regulations and the specific costs associated with them.
