We all know the feeling: that tangled drawer overflowing with outdated gadgets, the dusty TV gathering cobwebs in the corner, the phone with a screen so cracked it resembles a spiderweb. 

But what to do with this tech graveyard? Fear not, Garland residents! Responsible and eco-friendly electronic disposal options abound, and it’s easier than ever to give your electronics a dignified send-off.

Gather Your Electronics

Don’t just toss those outdated electronics! Recycling keeps harmful materials out of landfills and conserves precious resources. But what can you recycle besides computers and laptops? Here’s a handy guide to help you create a complete list of electronics ready for a second life:

Recycle Big-Ticket Items

  • Desktop and laptop computers: Whether they’re dusty dinosaurs or recent upgrades, responsible disposal is key.
  • Printers: Inkjet or laser, multifunction or standalone, give your printer a green goodbye.

Recycle Electronic Gadgets and Peripherals

  • Tablets and e-readers: Don’t let these knowledge devices become landfill fodder.
  • Cell phones and smartphones: Repurpose or responsibly recycle your old companion.
  • Digital cameras and camcorders: Capture memories, not pollution, by recycling used devices.
  • Monitors and keyboards: Give these desktop accessories a well-deserved electronic afterlife. Note that our R2-certified recycling center no longer accepts CRT monitors.
  • External hard drives and flash drives: Securely erase data and recycle for responsible storage solutions.
  • Video game consoles and controllers: Level up your environmental impact by recycling old gaming gear.

Recycle Smaller Electronic Essentials

  • Chargers and power cords: Untangle and recycle those forgotten or unused cords.
  • Batteries: From AAs to lithium-ions, dispose of them responsibly at designated collection points.
  • Light bulbs: Incandescent, CFL, or LED, recycle them instead of sending them to landfills.
  • Headphones and earphones: Give your ears a break from e-waste by recycling used audio accessories.
  • Calculators and portable GPS devices: Don’t let these handy tools become environmental burdens.

Data Security Matters

Before bidding farewell to your devices, ensure your personal data is truly gone. iPhones get securely erased, hard drives get shredded, and peace of mind becomes yours.

Remember, a clean slate is a safe slate!

Prepare Electronic Devices

Back up any important data and securely erase it yourself (software tools are available) or inquire about data wiping services offered by the recycler. Remove any accessories, peripherals, or batteries (these may require separate recycling)..
