TechRestore proudly offers e-waste recycling services to California residents!
Residents of California who'd like to save their old electronics from becoming toxic e-waste in some landfill, can drop off their items for recycling at our repair center in Concord, between the hours of 8am and 5pm, Monday through Friday or mail it in, using the form and shipping label here.
We accept the following electronic items for e-waste recycling:
Walk-in clients will receive a free recycling sticker (or two (c; ) to show that they did their part to help save the planet. You can also show your support for sustainable computing by downloading a free screensaver or desktop background.
TechRestore is concerned about the effect of electronics waste on our environment. As much as we love these shiny, glowing toys, we understand that computing, gaming and mobile communication must go hand-in-hand with protecting the planet.
We collect consumer eWaste in conjunction with a California Approved and Certified Recycler under the Electronics Waste Recycling Act of 2003 (SB20) to keep obsolete and defective electronics out of landfills.
Every day is Earth Day at TechRestore, because our whole business revolves around keeping electronics out of landfill. Techrestore regularly recycles tons of e-waste as part of our repair services and refurbishing processes. Our new e-waste initiative is one more piece of the TechRestore R3 environmental program: Repair, Restore and Recycle.
Repair - Repairing Is Recycling
Why throw out a laptop that just needs a new screen or hard drive, when you can get it repaired
for far less than it would cost to buy a new one? Even if it's not broken, a hard drive or Superdrive upgrade
can breathe new life into an old machine.
Restore - Laptop Reincarnation
Our restored laptops are not only a great deal, they're also a greener alternative to purchasing a brand new machine.
Just like products made from recycled materials, restored laptops are a fantastic way to satisfy your computing needs
without eating at the top of the electronics food-chain and consuming new resources. Since all of our computers are
restored to 100% functionality and come with an upgradeable warranty, they're better than used (and far less expensive than new).
Recycle - Reuse vs. Refuse
Broken parts and dead batteries reach a crossroads at the end of their life, where they can either be discarded and become
pollution or become a raw material for new products in the future. At TechRestore, be believe all old parts deserve to be
reincarnated, so our broken parts and failed batteries are sent to electronics recyclers, rather than landfill.
Being environmentally responsible doesn't have to be complicated or cost you more money. In fact, greener solutions are often less expensive, common-sense approaches. I won't deny that there is some satisfaction to be gained in throwing out a device that has been the source of much frustration but, if you get that broken device fixed, you'll gain the satisfaction of having made a smart, frugal and environmentally responsible choice. Oh, and by the way, this website is printed on 100% post-consumer recycled screen space. (c;
