Businesses should work with their commercial hauler to discuss recycling options for electronics, hazardous materials and metal. Building materials, cellphones, clothing, computers, toner cartridges and many other materials can be donated to charity and community groups or sold for reuse.
Businesses may recycle computers and electronic items with the following organizations:
- Best Buy
- eAsset Solutions
- National Center for Electronics Recycling
- ServiceSource: Keep It Green Electronics Recycling
- Turtle Wings
Hazardous materials are chemicals that shouldn’t be thrown out with your regular trash, as they might spill or leak from trash trucks. This includes most flammable, corrosive or poisonous solid, liquid and aerosol products.
