Obsolescence is Just a Lack of Imagination
Got old computers or other electronics?
We'll take them!
We will recycle anything that you can plug into a power outlet. This means we will recycle your computer, VCR, television, copy machine, and even your microwave and toaster, but not your large appliances such as a washing machine or refrigerator. When you give us your computer, you will receive a tax write-off, and we will attempt to fix your equipment and then give it away to someone who is unable to afford to buy a computer. If we are unable to reuse your equipment, it will be recycled in an environmentally friendly manner.
You want to donate your electronics to us but are located in Poughkeepsie, NY?
ECS Refining will donate their services to properly recycle all un-refurbishable material donated to ACCRC from out-of-state. They are a reputable and unbelievably adaptable recycler that wants to help you recycle your electronics with ACCRC and give refurbished computers to those without.
However, this does not leave you completely off the hook, as we have yet to find a matter transmitter or other source of free transportation so at this point there are transport fees that must be charged for your donation.
If you would like to donate your electronics to us from outside the State of California, go to Outside-of-California Donations to make arrangements.
