FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What Is E-Waste?

Lexington Electronic Recycling offers e-Waste recycling to help protect the environment.  

E-Waste consists of electronic devices and gadgets nearing or at the end of their useful life.  It covers discarded obsolete electronic devices, cell phones, laptops, and more.  There’s no need to stockpile your old electronics when Lexington Electronic Recycling will recycle them.  Additionally, we offer hard drive shredding that prevents your business or personal information theft.  Eliminate old electronics with e-waste recycling at Lexington Electronic Recycling.

There are thousands of electronic devices today that have made our lives easier and more convenient, even more enjoyable, but care must be taken when disposing of these items that have outlived their usefulness.

E-Waste is extremely toxic and the effects on humans are devastating.  Electronic waste isn’t just waste, it contains some toxic substances, such as mercury, lead, cadmium, arsenic, beryllium, and brominated flame retardants.  All electronics contain toxic materials that can be harmful to people and the planet.  Some electronics, like smartphones and laptop computers, contain heavy metals including cadmium, beryllium, hexavalent chromium or arsenic which have been shown to build up in our bodies and the environment.  The wires and cables that run through all this stuff are often coated with PVC, which contains toxic additives like phthalates.  Whether you’re a corporate, small business, government, or residential client, it’s almost impossible to expect you to know all the ins and outs of electronic recycling, when you have more important goals to worry about.

e-Waste is the fastest-growing source of waste in North America:

40-50 million tons of e-waste are generated worldwide, each year.

Only approximately 12% of e-waste is recycled.

85% of e-waste sent to landfills and incinerators is mostly burned, releasing harmful toxins in the air.

Over 65% of consumers stockpile unwanted devices in homes.

e-Waste comprises 70% of overall toxic waste.

5% of all municipal solid waste is compiled of obsolete electronic goods.

Quick and friendly service. We dropped off a bunch of light fixtures, outlets, and other various metal and electronic parts from a recent remodel. We drove down to their Nicholasville office and they helped unload all the recyclables.

Wonderful group of individuals that work there! We needed several old computer towers destroyed and the hard drives shredded. We were able to watch the entire process and were even allowed to watch the hard drives go through the shredding process. Also very reasonable prices. Would definitely recommend.
