Electronics Recycling for Residential Consumers

In an era increasingly defined by computers, mobile phones, tablets, and other personal electronic devices, many people are beginning to realize that electronics recycling for Residential cosumers is a basic necessity. But while this need is becoming more and more difficult to ignore in our daily lives, electronics recycling for residential households is still a relatively unclear process.

At Direct Resource Management, we welcome anyone to bring their old electronics to our facilities to be recycled for free – we’re conveniently located in the middle of the San Francisco Bay Area, in San Leandro.

How We Help Residential Clients Like You

While you may simply be hoping to get rid of old electronics that are cluttering your household, it’s also important to note that there are very real legal regulations in place that compel you to avoid dumping many electronics in the trash to be sent to landfills. For example, the state of California bans electronic waste like cell phones from being sent to landfills and also bans sending e-waste abroad to other countries to use in their landfills.

These types of regulations may seem like an unwelcome burden to you, but they’re designed in your best interest and to protect the community and our society as a whole. Many electronics like computers and cell phones contain hazardous materials like lead, which can find its way into not just ground soil but also our water supplies. Responsibly recycling your electronics means doing your part in keeping our environment and our health safe from these dangers.

Some examples of common electronics that we’re happy to recycle for you include:

  • Computers
  • Laptops
  • Cell phones and mobile phones (including iPhones, Blackberries, Android phones, and other smart phones)
  • Modems
  • Routers
  • Copiers
  • Printers
  • Scanners
  • And much more

If you’re unsure about the electronics you want to recycle, feel free to give us a call and we’ll be happy to answer your questions. In addition, if you belong to any companies or organizations that have a lot of old electronics they need to recycle in a responsible way, be sure to put us in touch with them, as we offer unsurpassed services in electronics recycling for larger groups that need services like remarketing of products and secure destruction of sensitive data.
