Where do you recycle my electronic waste?
UnWaste, Inc. employs radically different recycling techniques than most of our competitors. We believe that reuse is the most important element of the 3 R’s (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle). To that end, our UnWaste team evaluates every piece of material which enters our facility for reuse. If an item is deemed reusable, it is reconditioned made available to customers through our large network of vendors. If, on the other hand, your material is no longer usable, it is then broken down by material type (i.e. plastic, metal, paper/cardboard) and properly recycled utilizing the most environmentally friendly methods available!
