Safe. Personal. Certified.
Risk Free Electronics Recycling
Responsible electronics recycling is more important than ever, and Cohen makes it simple for residential recyclers like you to do the right thing with your unwanted household electronic items. Electronics make up the fastest growing global waste stream and represent a threat not only to the environment, but your personal data security.
What electronics can be recycled?
As a rule of thumb, if something uses batteries or plugs into an outlet, it qualifies for recycling. That can include everything from home office equipment to toys to small appliances to cables and chargers. You can take household electronics to most Cohen drive-thru recycling centers to be recycled. Use our new What Can I Recycle tool to look up specific items.
Electronics containing cathode ray tube (CRT) screens can do severe and expensive harm to the environment by leaching toxic compounds into the ground and water. The added handling costs of these items is higher than the value of the metals they contain. You can expect to pay $0.50-70 per pound to recycle a CRT TV or monitor.
We protect your privacy
Imagine how much personal info someone could get from your old phone or computer. By recycling with Cohen, you can rest assured that every last byte is destroyed.
Cohen’s proprietary process is backed by the ISO 9001 certification. We consistently provide services at our recycling center that meet our own rigorous standards as well as specific industry regulatory requirements.
Recycling electronics keeps harmful compounds like lead and mercury out of the ground and water, and preserves natural resources by reducing the need to mine new metals.
