What Our Customers Have to Say...

"I am very happy with Elgin Recycling and their staff and will continue to use them for years to come!" Zach M. Customer Since 2007 Elk Grove Village ,IL

Consumer Electronic Recycling

r2_orion_certThe use of electronics in our day to day lives has framed society as we know it today. Over the past two decades the speed and way in which we communicate, entertain or any other technological advancements have grown exponentially. Each individual American now owns approximately 24 electronic products per household, according to the Consumer Electronics Association. Many consumers are unaware that most states currently have laws on disposal and recycling of electronic equipment.

When it comes to the proper disposal of electronic devices, ensuring they are recycled responsibly and following environmentally sound practices is imperative. The EPA recommends consumers to choose certified recyclers when looking for an End of Life outlet for their e-scrap. Elgin Recycling filters all E-scrap from our four recycling centers through our R2 certified warehouse (West Dundee, IL) ensuring that your electronics are handled safely and securely. R2, Responsible Recycling, is an electronic recycling certification that is recognized by the EPA as a sound way of recycling your electronics. Elgin Recycling’s R2 certified electronic recycling division (West Dundee, IL) ensures our customers that we follow safe and environmentally friendly recycling practices.

If you have old cell phones, computers, printers or any other electronic scrap we will accept them at any of our 4 full service public locations.
