RE-PC Recycling Information

   
   

RE·PC's Views on Recycling

The three principles of environmental responsibility are reduce, reuse and recycle. In keeping with those concepts, since RE-PC has been reducing the amount of e-waste going to our landfills, reusing computer technology by providing the public with access through our retail stores, and recycling end-of-life materials by responsibly distributing them to processors. Reuse slows the need to produce more products that put pressure on our environment.

RE·PC is a collector for the Washington State Recycling Program - E-Cycle Washington. As a collector we are a recycle drop off point for your electronics.

Items We Accept for Recycling

We accept almost any item related to computers or electronics.

Generally if it runs on batteries, plugs into the wall or plugs into something that plugs into the wall then we can accept it for recycling.

Recycling Fees for Individuals & Businesses Under 50 Employees

Some items are free to recycle and some items are not. Some fees may apply depending on the type of item, quantity, and size. See below for recycling fees. Many items are now free to recycle for individuals and small businesses (under 50 employees) through us through the E-Cycle Washington program. See Who can recycle with E-Cycle Washington? for more information. Recycling fees are taxable since RE·PC is not a non-profit organization.  Recycling fees cover handling, labor, and proper environmental processing.
