Electronics Recycling with NLR

There are millions of smartphones, computers, laptops, and other electronics that we rely on each and every day. As technology use increases, the amount of E-Waste we generate rises as well. Your electronics recycling program needs to keep pace with this growing output. While some of these electronics are still functional and can be refurbished, others have a short lifespan and quickly become waste. These electronics need to be recycled not only to reduce landfill, any associated hazardous compounds. Computers, monitors, and most E-Waste with circuit boards and microchips contain amounts of lead, phosphorous, cadmium, or mercury. While newer flat screen monitors may contain less levels of lead, they still contain valuable resources like copper. That is why the government classifies them as universal waste and why NLR helps businesses of all sizes to recycle their E- Waste.

Electronics Recycling Conducted Responsibly

NLR makes sure your electronics recycling is transparent. Unfortunately there are alot of so-called “recyclers” out there, who take the good intentions of E-Waste recycling and turn it into an environmental and humanitarian disaster. This means they ship E-Waste overseas where oversight and best practices are not in place. Electronic waste or E-Waste still has some intrinsic value to it even after it is found to be non-functional. Many of the high-end electronics have rare earth materials involved in their chips and boards and these resources should be salvaged and recovered, rather than simply discarded.

When E-Waste is exported it causes a greater negative impact. Hazardous components are mismanaged and cause contamination and exported waste causes a humanitarian issue by significantly risking the health and safety for toxic exposures to the recyclers, who are frequently women and children. At NLR, we think the export of E-Waste is unacceptable, and detrimental to our planet. We work with only certified downstream vendors to make sure E-Waste stays here in the U.S. where it can be handled responsibly.
