ACE Recycling is excited to announce that we have partnered with River Crossing Self Storage and RV in Avondale! This allows ACE to offer a second electronic waste drop-off location. Even more exciting, River Crossing is open on Saturdays for electronic waste drop-off.  River Crossing is open for drop-off, Monday through Saturday, 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.

Changes to TV Drop-Off at River Crossing

As of January 1st, 2021, River Crossing cannot accept any TVs for electronic waste drop-off. ALL TVs and CRT monitors must be brought to ACE Recycling for disposal. However, flat-screen monitors can still be dropped off at River Crossing for recycling. If you have a CRT TV or monitor, you have a few options for responsible disposal. To learn about those options, please click here.

Beginning January 1st, 2021, ACE will charge $25 per CRT TV or monitor, $20 per projection TV, and $5 per flatscreen TV. As part of our commitment to our environment, ACE Recycling recycles TVs and CRT monitors responsibly. We ship TVs and CRT monitors to COM2 Recycling in Illinois.

TV Recycling

COM2 is one of only a handful of facilities that recycle TVs in North America. Consequently, ACE Recycling has formed a solid relationship with them, shipping thousands of TVs a year. When ACE Recycling ships out a load of TVs for recycling, we pay the shipping cost, and we pay by-the-pound for the recycling.  ACE and COM2 have to recoup our cost for responsible disposal. As such, TV and CRT monitor recycling is the only thing ACE charges for.

To learn more about TV recycling in the U.S. or find out which type of TV or monitor you have, please read ACE Recycling’s TV Recycling and Disposal article. While it is genuinely our intention to make recycling your electronics as easy and inexpensive as possible, we intend to do the right thing. In this case, doing what is best for our environment comes at a cost. We appreciate your understanding and help in this matter.

TV Recycling and Disposal at ACE Recycling
If landfilled, the heavy metal in CRTs has environmental disaster potential. The heavy metals inside a TV get into the land, water, and air, as they sit in landfills and piles in the desert.  Life does not tolerate heavy metals, such as lead, mercury, and arsenic, even in small quantities. They cause congenital disabilities, directly attack the brain, and ultimately lead to death if enough of the metal is allowed to build up in the body.

Items River Crossing Accepts for Recycling

Aside from TVs and CRT monitors, you can take the same e-waste items to River Crossing Self Storage as you can to ACE Recycling.  Small household appliances should be clean. If you have questions about specific items, call ACE Recycling at 623-907-5430. You can find a complete list of electronics that ACE Recycling accepts here

As part of their concern for our environment, River Crossing accepts expired car seats for recycling. Car seats are recycled through a partnership with KidSafe.
