Why Recycle Electronics
Electronics contain heavy metals, including lead, mercury, cadmium, and hexavalent chromium that can be harmful if released into the environment. Recycling of electronics ensures these materials are safely managed and that valuable materials such as steel, glass, and plastic, as well as precious metals such as copper, gold, tin, silicon, and aluminum are reclaimed for the manufacturing of new products. Reusing and recycling raw materials from electronic waste conserves natural resources and avoids air and water pollution while saving landfill space.
Don't Place Electronics in the Recycling Cart
The collection trucks compact materials and would damage the electronics, exposing employees to the heavy metals we are trying to keep out of the environment. Residents need to bring these electronics to the MRF (or another listed site). The MRF is a short 10 minute drive from downtown High Point off Kivett Drive on Riverdale.
Security of Computer Hard Drives
Most hard drives collected are shredded into raw material for other uses. Hard drives that may be refurbished are wiped clean of any data by utilizing data sanitizing software and are randomly verified by an independent party for compliance to guarantee no data remains.
