Recycle Your Old Computing Equipment

Recycle your computer equpment...

Don’t just discard your old computer monitors and other equipment in the trash! Not only is it bad for the environment, it’s also illegal as many of these components contain hazardous material.

At our Computer Troubleshooters office in Encinitas we routinely recycle old computers when you buy a new one through us. There is no charge for this service. However, if you aren’t replacing an old computer, but just want to discard it, take it to a recycling depot. In North County San Diego, EDCO provides an equipment recycling dropoff location in San Marcos.

By the way, when we recycle your computer, we first do a military-grade data wipe of the hard drive, and then provide it to the recycling company for physical destruction. This ensures that your private data will never be compromised.
