Printer Recycling

  • We can recycle small or medium printer that a person can easily carry on their own.

  • We also recycle large expensive printers. Their price range typically start at $2000 + dollars. There are thousands of these recycled every year.Larger corporations usually use these as a central printer, connected to a network, for everybody in the office to use. These printers are typically leased through a service contract and therefore professionally installed and maintained by a IT professional. The life expectancy for such a printer is typically three to six years. 

  • It usually takes 2 people to comfortably move these around.
    We can pick these up at your office for an additional fee based on your Zip Code.

  • These printers usually have 4 separate ink cartridges, one for each color and one for black. Ink cartridges cost are anywhere from $100 and up. These printers weigh between 100 and 300 lbs, and are sometimes mounted on wheels to make moving them around a little easier.

  • These printers can easily be confused with medium printers if they don’t have the bottom part of the printer  or the cabinet, so please check before scheduling a pick-up.

  • These printers always have more than one paper tray to handle all types of paper sizes and paper stock thickness.
    Large printers are high resolution printers which will easily print 30+ pages per minute. They are typically 8 times the size of a small printer. They typically have a print counter to keep track of print count. Some manufacturers are Sharp, Xante, Xerox, Ricoh, and Zebra

  • Extra large printers are used at big companies or schools that obviously have a greater printing load. These will print, sort, and staple books.

Computer Recycling

  • There are three main parts that make up a personal computer. The computer is the large steel box which contains the hard drive, DVD or CD, power supply, mother board, and the processor. The computer may also contain other components such as the sound and video cards, and internal modems. The monitor could be the newer LCD or older CRT type, it is the screen, or the part of the computer that looks like a television.
     
  • The keyboard is the part which, not surprisingly, looks like a typewriter keyboard. In some older models, the computer may be housed in the same case as the monitor or the keyboard. For the purposes of this fact sheet the keyboard is considered to be part of the computer.

  • What happens to your keyboard or mouse?
    All keyboards and mouse are dismantled and sorted at our facility.  Most recyclers simply shred or bale and export their keyboards. However, because we dismantles the keyboards, there are many more uses for the recycled material.  These materials recovered from keyboards include plastic, rubber, wire, metal, and Mylar.

  • Mice are taken apart and recycled for their plastic, wire, and circuit boards when applicable
