IT Guys is committed to safe recycling procedures of computers, monitors and other electronics. Once computers have processed their last byte, the question of what to do with them next can get a bit messy. Toxic chemicals, carcinogens, and heavy metals are all part of what makes computers work. Improper disposal can bring them all a little too close for comfort.
Getting your old electronics to the great motherboard in the sky can be tricky to do responsibly. There’s a lot of strict laws in the state of Colorado that delineate the stringent requirements for handling e-waste and prevent unauthorized “recyclers” from handling obsolete electronics.
IT Guys is dedicated to environmental stewardship and as policy will never export electronic components outside of the country, or outside of the state for that matter.
If your machine still functions (and not just as a paperweight), then volunteers at IT Guys will put that computer to good reuse. At the re:Start Program, we rebuild computers out of salvaged parts and donate them to people that need them. Our hope is to give old computers new life, and give people a new shot at life.
Most electronics can be recycled without difficulty except for CRT monitors which have a host environmentally hazardous components that too toxic to handle. We offer our services as far north as Cheyenne, Wyoming (Cheyene, WY), as far south as Colorado Springs, and usually any place in a 150 mile radius of Denver, Colorado. If you have a large volume of computers, and/or electronics, and you live outside of Colorado, we may still be able to help, and transport your material to our Colorado facility.
