What is E-Waste?
Think of e-waste as anything that you need to plug in that you want to throw out.
Items that are defined as e-waste (things with circuit boards) are not allowed in the trash, and need to be properly recycled and repurposed by state law. But more than what’s legal, it’s the GREEN thing to do! At eWaste4good, we help you recycle the following items for FREE:
Televisions | Fax Machines | Oscilloscopes | Computer Monitors | Optical Drives | PC Boards
Computers | DVD Players | Loose PCB | Laptops | VCR / Beta | Keyboards | Cables & Cords
Printers | Radios | Computer Mice | Stereo Components | Hard Drives | Tape & Zip Drives
Arcade Machines | Power Tools | Amplifiers | Telephone | Cell Phones | Car Audio
And many more items. Just remember.... If it plugs into a socket or accepts batteries its most likely eWaste
We now are accepting all appliances and rolling copiers
We strongly believe in reuse over processing (a.k.a. recycling) since even the most responsible processing still has an impact. Here's what happens with your e-waste after it is collected by eWaste4good.
We sort all e-waste into two categories:
Reuse: We refurbish and resell as much equipment as we can to give old electronics a new life.
Processing: Equipment that cannot be refurbished is transported to one of our downstream partners.

Your e-waste is then driven to our Local Sorting Facility, items are separated and classified as either
"reusable" or "recyclable."
Items classified as "reusable" are refurbished and sold at discount prices on ebay, Craigslist, or through
Terracycle. "Recyclable"items are sent "locally" to our recycling partners for processing in the California Bay Area.
During the processing phase items are shredded, refined, and finally resold on the open market. These
materials are used to create new products.
