No appointment is necessary unless you would like us to shred hard drives and witness the destruction. **Drop-off receiving is at the BACK of our building at door 133. When you turn into the Distribution Center, veer left to go behind the first building on the left and continue to door 133. We will unload for you there.

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.
Fees for Services
Fees are as follows and may change periodically:
- $12 ea. for CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) Monitors
- $0.35/lb for CRT or Flat-Panel TVs
- $0.45/lb for DLP or Rear Projection TVs
- $10 for Hard Drive Shredding
Wooden console TVs and broken-screen CRT TVs and monitors are not accepted.
In addition to weekday drop-off availability, Protec often partners with local governments and businesses throughout the state, conducting free recycling events for community members. Check our Recycle Day Events page for more info.
