Why You Should Care Whether Your E-Cycler is Certified

Why You Should Care Whether Your E-Cycler is Certified

For some products, recycling is more involved than finding your closest blue bin. This is especially true with electronics recycling, where a little research is required to make sure that you are recycling products responsibly.

Increased government regulation and official certification of recyclers both help make this possible.

Of all the products brought to market each year, none render their previous iterations obsolete faster than electronics equipment. With technology often evolving faster than perceived market demand, electronics have officially become the largest growing recyclable material in the U.S., with over 7 million tons of electronics equipment available for recycling each year.

But with great technology comes great responsibility, as the recycling process for a desktop computer is more complicated than that of an aluminum can. Recyclers must separate the glass, metals and plastics and find a recycling market for all these individual recovered materials.

Electronics recyclers also must take special care to ensure that any hazardous substances or residues removed during the recycling process (such as batteries, leaded-glass, and mercury) are recovered safely and recycled.

Television Recycling Made Easy with Accurate IT Services

Television Recycling Made Easy with Accurate IT Services

With the current need for CRT Television recycling skyrocketing, Accurate IT Services has revisited its policy on recycling these old tube TVs.

Accurate IT Services is now charging $1 per inch on CRT Televisions, a much better alternative to our previous weight-based fee. With this charge, you’ll know how much your TV costs to recycle before you bring it in, reassuring that you won’t be startled by an outrageous per pound fee like most companies charge.

As you may know, CRT TVs are expensive to recycle, containing many hazardous materials, such as lead and cadmium, which must be properly removed by licensed organizations. With the increasing need to dispose of these TVs, however, Accurate IT Services wants to make it convenient as possible in order to keep TVs out of landfills.

"This is the first ever TV collection in the county. More and more recycling centers and landfills are refusing to take televisions because they are a hazard and expensive to safely process." - Angela Carbetta, Recycling Coordinator for Marion County Recycling & Litter Prevention


This electronics drop off event was open to businesses and schools instead of just residents. Accurate IT Recycling Services of Columbus collected all types of electronics for free, except for televisions. Because of the costs of processing, there was a $15 recycling fee for TVs.

Lack of Ohio E-Waste Regulations

Lack of Ohio E-Waste Regulations

Many states have recently developed regulations stating that certain non-working and obsolete electronic products must be treated as hazardous waste if intended for disposal. However, Ohio is not one of those states. As of 2008, ten states have state legislation regarding the disposal of e-waste. Furthermore, obsolete electronics that contain Cathode Ray Tubes (CRTs) and mercury are considered hazardous waste under federal regulations. However, these regulations do not apply to “small quantity generators” like household sources of electronics. Therefore, it is perfectly legal to throw electronic waste in the trash in most states.

Recycling with us pays!

Recycling with us pays!

The slogan plastered across our website, truck, and business cards is a testament to our unique practice within our field. While most electronics recycling companies charge for their services, we offer ours free of charge to businesses, schools, and other organizations. In addition, the public is free to drop off all electronics, excluding CRT monitors and televisions, for no charge. More importantly, we are sometimes even able to pay the customer for remarket able equipment! Here at Accurate IT Services we attempt to find the value in all of our customers’ e-waste goods to maximize their asset return.

So how does this work, you ask? At Accurate IT Services, we will do an on-site value assessment of electronic equipment to determine its “remarketability.” We base our assessment on the age, condition, and specifications of the product. For instance, if a product is within four years of age, in good condition, and has remarketable specifications, there will most certainly be a payout. We base our payout scale on the remarket value of the product and provide the customer with a percentage of that, much like secondhand clothing stores or consignment shops.

Collection event in Marion will take TVs; electronics from schools and businesses! Saturday June 11th

MARION - An electronics drop off Saturday will be the first opportunity for a television collection in the county and is open to businesses and schools instead of just residents.
Accurate IT Recycling Services of Columbus is collecting all types of electronics, free for every device except televisions.
Because of the costs of processing, there is a $15 recycling fee for TVs.
Mayor Scott Schertzer connected with the Marion County Recycling and Litter Prevention to get the collection organized, he said.
"Recycling is not mandatory, but generally people think it's a good thing to do," he said.
He was looking to get more people to participate in curbside recycling, and the idea blossomed out of that with investigation into the city's recycling program, Schertzer said.
Most drop offs where electronics are accepted are restricted to residential services. This one will be open to all kinds of businesses and schools.
"It's a good thing for everybody when we recycle," he said.
