A ZERO waste ZERO landfill recycling operation

We not only specialize in sustainable recycling of all types of electronics and other equipment, but do it with an ethical commitment to our planet and our local community.  All recycled items are processed right here in the Pacific North West.  We do not send anything to the developing nations for processing!  Our completely domestic operation guarantees we never export hazardous materials to other countries or prisons for disassembly. 

We ensure regulatory compliance, complete data security, and complete transparency.

The e-Waste Disposal Process

  1. The items received are manually dismantled as the first step to recovering all of the basic components or materials.  Items that cannot be dismantled in an efficient manner are put through a shredding process.
  2. Whole e-scrap or dismantled parts are shredded down to pieces that are less than 2 inches in diameter.  They are then separated through a series of conveyor belt connected equipment by a process that is 95% automated.
  3. All electronic products are recycled and processed locally here in Washington.  Leveraging our own processing center helps the local economy by keeping the work here.  We also help local business to be more environmentally responsible by making sustainable recycling services available to them for FREE.
