Constant updates in technology such as radios, smartphones, and televisions have caused a surplus of broken and obsolete electronics that all too often are thrown into the garbage, known as electronic waste, or e-waste.
E-waste often contains toxic chemicals and hazardous materials. If these products aren’t disposed of properly, the substances can become hazardous!
E-waste recycling is a process that seeks to recover e-waste material so that it can be reused for new products. Rumpke has options to make it easier for commercial businesses and homeowners to discard and recycle e-waste.
How is E-Waste Collected?
We offer on-site disposal services as well as shipping containers for businesses who need help managing a large volume of e-waste, while local solid waste management districts can point you to safe residential e-waste drop off centers.
Rumpke offers a variety of indoor and outdoor container options to meet the needs of your recycling program.
Options include, but are not limited to:
- Wheeled carts (65- and 95-gallon) for small-volume generators
- Personal deskside boxes
- Gaylord boxes
- Open-top recycling containers
- Compactor services
- Trailers for large-volume generators
Commercial recycling containers ranging from 2- to 8-cubic yards offer extra space for e-waste recycling.
