Colorado: Only about 17% of 53.6 million metric tons of consumer electronics are responsibly recycled and documented each year, leaving 44.3 million tons unaccounted for.

Has anyone ever just thrown out the huge box of old cables and cords that you’ve been carting from home to home for years and lived to tell the tale?

Each year, people around the world throw away about 50 million metric tons of tech.

Don’t let old tech go to waste. We recycle all kinds of tech, no matter how old, how big, or where you bought it.
