The EPA reports:

  • That recyclers recover more than 100 million pounds of waste from electronics each year
  • Over 20 pounds of e-waste is generated per person each year
  • The EPA estimates only 12.5% of e-waste is recycled
  • Recycling one million laptops saves the energy equivalent of electricity used by 3,657 US homes over a one-year period
  • CRT monitors on average contain nearly 8 pounds of lead
  • Circuit boards contain carcinogens and heavy metals
  • E-waste is highly toxic

Environmental

Computers contain toxic materials that do not break down naturally which can greatly damage the environment, groundwater, and ecosystems if not disposed of properly. Computer accessories and components, such as batteries, toner cartridges, LCDs, and monitors, are sometimes an afterthought but can be just as toxic. Your organization risks substantial government fines and actions for environmental infractions in managing computer scrap and technology assets (known as e-scrap). While we believe the best form of recycling is asset recovery and remarketing (zero landfill), we are experts on environmentally safe disposal if that is the objective.

Techway Services is an EPA registered company and has the authority to handle your e-scrap responsibly, reducing your risk exposure. We work within strict procedures to ensure that your e-scrap management and processing is compliant.

Our responsible recycling assures secure product destruction through our extensive metals and electronic recycling capabilities.  Non-functioning equipment is processed via demanufacturing and/or shredding to maximize raw material extraction. Techway Services is the leader in environmentally responsible management of end-of-life electronics. No electronic equipment or components ever go to landfill. Electronic waste is a growing worldwide issue. Techway Services cares about the environment and believes it is paramount to provide proper disposal solutions for technology equipment.
