What Can Be Recycled 

ACE Recycling can process most electronic equipment with little to no waste. However, with the fast pace of technological advancement, your item(s) may not be specifically listed below. If the device you wish to recycle is not on the list, please send us a message or call us. We are happy to answer questions about specific equipment.

All electronics dropped off for recycling are processed in an environmentally responsible way. ACE Recycling will erase all hard drives according to NIST standards without ever booting your device. For detailed information about how ACE Recycling destroys data, please click here.

There is no appointment needed for electronic waste drop-off and no fee** for recycling. We will help you unload! If you require a Certificate of Data Destruction, please let us know when you drop-off. Thank you for your partnership in protecting our local environment.
