E-Waste Recycling

E-waste or electronic waste are products that are no longer working, unwanted, or at the end of their 'life'. While above the ground, modern electronics are safe to use. However, most electronics contain some forms of toxic materials that when discarded and buried at a landfill, they pose serious risks to our environment. 

With the definition of e-waste continuing to expand, due to being in an era of rapid technological advancement. It important that we do our part by being conscious of our consumption and recycling older models of e-waste. Therefore, CC is committed to responsibly recycling our e-waste at a local Colorado Springs facility, E-Tech Recyclers

E-Tech Recyclers focus on sustainable and responsible recovery of end-of-life electronics. They work to empower those in the community, such as business owners and organizations to take responsible, secure, and charitable approach to e-waste recycling. All electronics are properly recycled through vendors that are chosen specifically for their environmental, health, and safety standards.
