Full Answer

Not all services accept the same electronics or provide pick-up. Earth911 lets users search by electronic type and location as well as refine results to curb-side. In addition to state specific eCycling program lists, Electronic Industries Alliance contains a comprehensive list of national programs. However, program details regarding information like pick-up are not included with the listings.

One company based solely on full-service removal is 1-800-GOT-JUNK? A team picks up items and disposes, donates or recycles them accordingly. The company puts an emphasis on responsible electronic disposal. Prices vary by location.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency encourages consumers not only to make the effort to donate or recycle used or end-of-life electronics, but also to do so through an eCycling certified program. This ensures that products are recycled through environmentally acceptable practices, preventing any dangerous materials from contaminating the environment as well as allowing valuable ones to be harvested and reused.
