Anyone is encouraged to dispose of electronic goods through our E-Cycle program, where the items are taken apart and sold as commodities or re-purposed. This service keeps hundreds of thousands of pounds of e-waste out of the landfill every year, and provides meaningful jobs to the people TECH serves.
