What Can Be Recycled? 

ACE Recycling can process most electronic equipment with little to no waste and at no cost. The general rule of thumb is: if it has been plugged in at one point in its life, it can be recycled. However, with the fast pace of technological advancement,  your item(s) may not be specifically listed below. If the device you wish to have recycled 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 are processed in an environmentally responsible way. ACE will erase all hard drives according to NIST standards without ever booting your device. For detailed information about how ACE destroys data, please click here.  If you require a Certificate of Data Destruction, please let us know when you drop-off.

There is no appointment needed for electronic waste drop-off and no fee** for recycling. Drop-off anytime between 8 AM and 4 PM.  We will help you unload! Thank you for your partnership in protecting our local environment.
