Electronic Recycling for Home and Business in Arizona

ACE Recycling is a facility in Tolleson, Arizona, specializing in electronic recycling and repair. Our goal is to offer our community an environmentally responsible way to dispose of electronic equipment that is no longer needed or outdated. Our circular economy model aims to keep as many materials in use or circulation as possible. In this model, repairing and upgrading electronics is the ideal solution, while recycling is the last resort. We have IT professionals on-site who can determine if a device is reusable. By repairing and upgrading electronics, we can offer affordable technology to our community. For electronics that are unable to be repaired or upgraded, we recycle them. Our team disassembles the device and separates its components, which are then extracted for raw materials by our partners. Using recycled raw materials to create new devices reduces the need to pull more from the Earth.

A Circular Approach to Electronic Recycling

One highly effective solution to the mounting problem of electronic waste is the adoption of a circular economy approach. This approach, which involves maintaining all materials and components at their highest value while eliminating waste from the system, not only benefits the environment but also presents a compelling economic case. By implementing this model, we can significantly reduce costs for the economy and consumers.  It is anticipated that over the next ten years, the circular economy will more than double, driving an additional $100+ billion of value to the global economy.   For example, a circular economy for electronics could potentially reduce consumers’ costs by 7% by 2030 and 14% by 2040. Moreover, recycling metals is up to 10 times more energy-efficient and cost-effective than mining, leading to substantial savings for end consumers. Today, the circular economy is not just a recognized solution to climate change mitigation, but also a template for more efficient and resilient business operations, offering a compelling economic incentive for its adoption.
