Please note that some fees are associated with recycling TVs and CRT monitors. These fees are required because of the environmental hazards and costs associated with safely processing them to ensure that no devices or components will end up in landfills.
Your Private Data is Destroyed
For your protection (and ours), we sanitize hard drives from all donated computers and other info-carrying devices. Optionally, you may wish to have us shred them for visual confirmation that all data has been destroyed. It is not necessary to remove the drive prior to arrival as this is included with the service. Protec Recycling is a NAID AAA Certified service provider.
