E-Waste

The term “e-waste” is applied to consumer electronic equipment that is broken, obsolete or otherwise no longer wanted. E-waste can include computers, printers, televisions, VCRs, cell phones, fax machines, stereos and electronics. These electronic devices may contain lead, copper, and other heavy metals or potentially toxic substances.

In California, you’re no longer allowed to dispose of electronics with regular garbage. If you have functioning electronics, the best option is to donate them to your local charity therefore prolonging their useful life. Send us your nonfunctioning or obsolete equipment and we will recycle them as part of the Covered Electronic Waste Recovery and Recycling Program established by California’s Electronic Waste Recycling Act of 2003.

FRS has the equipment and qualified personal to handle any of your E-waste needs. For a minimal fee, Filter Recycling can come to your home or business and take care of the packaging and transporting of your e-waste to our permitted recycling facility.
