We hold ourselves to high standards to keep the Earth, our employees, and our customers’ data safe and secure. In fact, Tech Discounts grew out of our desire in our recycling division, Tech Dump, to make every effort to REUSE old electronics when possible.
For those unwanted gadgets sitting around your home, take advantage of Tech Dump’s two drop-off sites: Golden Valley (back door) and St. Paul. They offer the same great service and mission for helping you de-clutter and protect the environment.
A few specifics as you prepare to recycle your items:
- Some items, such as tube/CRT TVs and printers, have a recycling fee to ensure proper disposal, so review their electronics recycling list before you head over.
- All of your ready-to-be-recycled devices are processed in the United States – and this includes CRTs, too. We never export unprocessed materials for disposal.
- You can rest assured that your data security is a primary concern. Check out our data security practices to learn more about our secure data destruction procedures.
- All of our downstream vendors are closely evaluated according to Tech Dump’s voluntary standard of requirements. They only work with vendors in the Midwest who comply with our strict requirements, which includes an R2 or e-Stewards certification.
