How to Prepare for Home Collections and Events
There are a few things that help the recycling process...
Wipe Your Items
We process your electronics by hand. Wiping down your items removes dust, dirt and cobwebs to keep toxins out of our lungs and off our clothes.
Unlock from the Cloud
We destroy all data on all devices. If you remove your phone or tablet from your cloud account, then reset it, it can be reused safely. Can't do this? That's fine too. It can be used for parts.
Box Only in Cardboard
Box all items in cardboard only. Our facilities are too rough on plastic or other types of boxes. No plastic or other types of bags either please.
Remove Soft Plastics
Remove all plastic bags and styrofoam packaging. Due to the volumes we receive, it's a considerable time and expense for us to transport these to a recycler.
Leave on Your Doorstep
To ensure your items aren't taken, leave them on your property, protected from rain, on your front doorstep, with a note, "for Lisa & Adrian".
