Industrial Telecommunications Recycling


When it comes time to upgrade telecommunication infrastructure, Elgin Recycling offers a comprehensive option for recycling your End of Life units in a responsible manner. Whether you are part of the executive team concerned for your company's assets or an IT Manager being held responsible for the proper data security and recycling options, we can do it all for you. We can bring supplies to assist with packaging, pick up all your material at your facility for you, can even do de-installations.

We do removal, transportation, de-manufacturing, de-installations, warehousing and recycling. Certificates of destruction will be provided if required. Elgin Recycling partners with many telecommunication companies to assist them with End of Life Assets. Elgin Recycling has extensive knowledge of telecommunication equipment in regards to recycling the commodities located within the equipment.

In addition to our experience with telecommunication equipment, Elgin Recycling takes brand and data security very seriously and understands how important it is to handle sensitive material properly. In order to ensure our customers that we are taking brand security, data security and environmental concerns seriously, we obtained R2 Certification. Being an R2 Certified recycler ensures that our company is following environmental and worker health and safety practices within our operation.


Elgin Recycling filters all E-scrap from our five recycling centers through our R2 certified warehouse ensuring that your electronics are handled safely and securely. As an R2 recycler, Elgin Recycling has a responsibility to eliminate all data on hard drives and data devices. Elgin Recycling degausses all hard drives that come through our facility with our High Energy Pulse Degausser. With this technology Elgin Recycling can assist you in meeting compliance standards for government mandates that require complete elimination of sensitive information stored on magnetic media prior to re-use or disposal.

We recognize companies of all sizes need to have a reputable outlet for End of Life Electronics. Elgin Recycling regards brand and data security as a top priority within our electronics division. The R2 Standard addresses data security as a number one concern, so you can be sure that your electronic equipment is managed according to the highest industry standards. 

Please visit our Responsible Recycling page to learn more about the R2 Standard practices within our company. See a list below of types of telecommunication equipment we accept but not limited to:

  • Telecommunication Equipment
