 We are registered with the the Missouri Department Of Natural Resources Voluntary Registration Program for recycling companies and demanufacturing facilities. (Certificate available upon request). We are in full compliance with the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. Click HERE to see our listing on the Missouri DNR web site. Our Missouri ID # is 040152 and our EPA ID # is MOR000516229. 

 

Economic Impact

Much of the e-waste in the U.S. is shipped overseas, ostensibly for recycling -- but it often ends up in polluting landfills. A substantial amount of America’s “recycled” electronics were actually shipped to developing nations like China, India and Africa. Workers in these locations, who are often women and children, disassemble products with their bare hands, exposing themselves to a host of toxins
 

Landfill Impact

In 2009 alone, the U.S. discarded electronics like TVs, computers and computer peripherals that comprised approximately 2.37 tons of waste. Of that amount, about 1.7 million tons were destined for landfills. E-waste packs landfills with reusable or recoverable materials and takes up space needed for non-recyclable products. 

 

Energy Consumption

Computer infrastructure also contains valuable metals such as gold, copper and platinum. Throwing away computers forces manufacturers to expend energy and resources to find raw materials for new products. Mining for precious metals, creation of engineered plastics and the manufacture of brand new components all consume energy and expel greenhouse gases into the environment, hastening the effects of climate change. Recycling computers allows manufacturers to reclaim the metals and other materials and reuse them.

 

Groundwater Pollution

While the EPA believes that “disposal of electronics in properly managed municipal solid waste landfills does not threaten human health and the environment.” Computers indisputably contain toxic metals like lead, cadmium and mercury. If computers are discarded in improperly managed landfills, the metals could leach into the ground surrounding the dump site. The resulting pollution could affect groundwater and the flora and fauna that depend on it.

 Community

 

Consumers may discard computers that are outdated in favor of newer models, even if they’re still in good working condition. This practice denies the benefits of technology to secondary users such as schools, nonprofit organizations, small businesses or students. Donating working computers and their peripherals extends their usefulness and keeps them out of landfills longer. With this in mind, we evaluate the condition of  the electronic equipment we receive and refurbish equipment that is still viable and donate it to local charities such as the Boys and Girls Club, schools or local churches that can resell or give the equipment to those less fortunate who otherwise might not be able to afford a new computer. We would be happy to furnish documentation to this effect if you so desire.
