Electronic Recycling!

Everyone has some old computers or electronics collecting dust in a dark corner somewhere.  Most people hang on to old electronics because they don’t know what to do with them. Well, good news! Elkhorn Computer is your go-to full service computer shop! We offer an electronic recycling program that is entirely free for most items!

Things we recycle for FREE:

  • Desktop computers
  • Laptops
  • Printers
  • Flat-screen monitors/ TV
  • Any and all cords!
  • Keyboard/ Mice
  • Speakers
  • VCR / DVD players

  • Just about any electronics you can think of!

Unfortunately we will no be able to recycle big CRT style monitors and TV’s like the one pictured below.

We are unable to recycle these this year… Sorry!

 

Electronic recycling isn’t the same as normal recycling. Computer parts should not be thrown into a normal trash can and buried in a land fill somewhere.  It is very important to dispose of all electronics properly.  It’s why we offer this service to everyone!  We want to make sure we’re doing what we can to take care of the environment.

What about my personal data?

It is important to keep security in mind when it comes to electronic recycling.  That is why we take the utmost precautions when it comes to your data.  We wipe all recycled hard drives in shop using DoD 5220.22-M and US Army AR380-19 standards and protocol. That means all personal data that comes into shop for electronic recycling will be completely destroyed! Not only do we wipe the data using several different methods, but we also physically destroy the hard drives.  Rest assured, your data is secure with us!

So please, if you have any old computer or electronics to recycle, come by our shop and drop them off! We would be more than happy to take them off your hands. Clear out that space they’ve been taking up.
