First, thank you for making the right choice and looking for a place to safely and properly recycle your electronics! You’d probably be surprised to know that only 20% of all eWaste is properly recycled.
Apto Solutions focuses on assisting businesses with their eWaste and does not accept drop-offs from the public, but here are some resources to help you find the best solution in your area:
The following sites list companies in the USA with industry verified certifications:
e-Stewards Certified Companies – http://e-stewards.org/find-a-recycler/ [Be sure to select the Service “Consumer drop off”]
R2 Certified Companies – https://sustainableelectronics.org/recyclers [Be sure to select that ‘Drop-off’ is “Yes”]
Still no luck?
