Recycling Events

Electronic Asset Security partners with local municipalities and organizations to provide back-end support for their electronics recycling events. We provide the equipment, staffing, and recycling experience necessary to make an event run smoothly and keep e-waste out of landfills!

Generally, anything electronic that is NOT an appliance or contains hazardous waste. See below for a more detailed list.

Sometimes, we are guests at a city recycling event to provide electronics recycling capabilities. The city or other guests may accept items we do not. Please check the city’s event website (typically linked in our description) for more details. 

Most items are accepted Free of Charge, with some exceptions for CRTs, TVs, and certified shredding for data-containing devices like hard drives, SSDs, tablets, phones, etc.  

Sometimes, the sponsoring organization will pay for these items. See the event details below for applicable fees for specific events.
