    Recycling industry, What is new. 

    Since COVID-19 many recycling companies were forced to downsize or just went out of business. But 18 months before that the recycling industry suffered a steep decline in revenue due to Trump imposing tariffs on all imports from  China and other countries. All of this caused the cost of recycling to increase. SBC Recycle was also affected therefore we are forced to charge for all items being recycled, with that said 90% of our customers will not be affected because the items being recycled has enough value to cover the cost of recycling, (see recycling cost below).

    Recycling Cost (You pay us or we pay you?)

    Short Answer: There is a cost for recycling but the items you recycle might have value. If they do have value you will typically not pay to recycle, in fact, you might even get a check (we pay you). If the items you recycle do not have value we will charge you for recycling.  Please see below for items we buy.

    There are two charges associated with recycling.  

    1. The first would be the pickup fee (No pickup fee if you drop off your items) 
    2. The second would be for items being recycled (Most items are free to drop off)

    Items We Charge For

    We also give credit for valuable items to offset the cost of recycling, 90% of our customers don’t pay for recycling, instead, they get a check in the mail because they give us valuable items. 

    1. Toner and Ink Cartridges
    2. Printers
    3. Broken Monitors
    4. TV’s 
    5. Freon Bearing Appliances
