Many locations feature a self-serve drop-off container. The URT recycling bin offers a no-hassle, stress-free solution to address the growing electronics waste (e-waste) problem our nation faces. The process for drop off is convenient and easily accessible. Consumers simply visit the e-cycling bin and place their used electronics inside. e-Stewards® certified recycler URT will collect and properly recycle the materials, ensuring personal data is destroyed. Recycling is provided at no cost to consumers.
Materials acceptable for drop-off include laptops and other computers, televisions, monitors, wires, cables, power supplies, cell phones, keyboards, mice, printers, copiers, home and office phones, VCRs, DVD and CD players, and other consumer electronics (exclusions: fire alarms, smoke detectors, mercury containing devices, dehumidifiers, exit signs and contaminated medical equipment).
“Electronic waste is growing at an exponential rate. This program provides a convenient, safe alternative for consumers to responsibly dispose of potentially hazardous e-waste at no cost. It supports URT’s guiding mission to provide recycling that is environmentally sustainable, easy to access and affordable. When you recycle with URT, your materials are processed domestically and in accordance with the strictest available industry standards. This level of transparency and attention to detail is critical when selecting a recycler,” said URT President Jim Cornwell.
Locations that will accept electronics from consumers at no cost through the URT recycling program include several Habitat for Humanity partners. These partner locations offer a convenient solution for e-waste recycling by allowing residents to drop-off electronics in-store at select Habitat for Humanity Restore locations. “We are so pleased to work with Habitat for Humanity to offer this service to the community. We sincerely appreciate and value their partnership,” said Cornwell.
