How to Get Rid of Electronics?

We all end up with broken electronics – old TVs, computers, and cellphones – that we need to get rid of. Commonly, getting rid of “e-waste” is not as simple as throwing it in the garbage. Most technologies contain hazardous materials that could cause damage to the environment if proper electronic waste disposal is ignored.


If you’re looking for electronics removal & disposal services, there are several options to take into consideration. Many older electronics are still valuable and can be donated or recycled, and if not, there are plenty of junk removal companies that offer their professional services.

What’s E-Waste?

Electronic waste, also known as “e-waste,” is a term used to describe broken electronic devices. This includes broken computers, televisions, stereos, VCRs, music players, DVD players, monitors, and cell phones. E-waste is everywhere in our homes and offices, and many of these products may be restored, reused, or recycled.


Now, let’s explore different electronic removal & disposal services, and choose the one that fits your business’ needs and preferences. 

Donate Your Electronics 

Electronics in working conditions that aren’t significantly outdated can be donated to charity instead of hiring an electronics removal & disposal service. Your electronics can be donated if:


  • They are less than five years old. 
  • They still function reliably. 
  • They do not require major repairs or replacement parts. 


Local schools, libraries, and adult education and employment programs often accept used computers and related accessories. It’s advised to reach out to your local centers to find out what they need before you drop off any working electronics. 

Recycle Everything

Before e-waste is recycled, you have to determine if it can be refurbished or donated. Once it’s ready to be recycled, the device is taken apart and the materials are organized into separate categories to determine what can be reused and what can be further processed.


Determining which parts can be reused or converted is important because many electronics contain toxic metals and chemicals that need to be disposed of carefully. When an electronic device is dismantled, the toxic pieces are properly disposed of while the reusable pieces are used for other purposes.
