Recycling Your Computer

The problem with computers is that even the very best ones eventually irrevocably crash and die. Then you have to go through the major hassle of buying a new one and setting it up the way you want it. Even when you finally accomplish that, however, your problems still aren’t over. Nope, that old computer that was your best buddy for so long now sits there dead, but still glaring at you. What to do? Call High Tech Recycling, that’s what! We are the answer to all of your electronics recycling needs.

We offer recycling services for the entire Metro Detroit area, including Oakland, Macomb, and Wayne counties, and we make it easy for you to safely and correctly recycle all of your electronics, not just computers. When you need to recycle a computer, look no further than High Tech Recycling. We take all of the following:

  • Desktop computers
  • Laptops
  • Tablets
  • Servers
  • Hard drives
  • Floppy disks
  • Data Tapes
  • Monitors
  • Keyboards
  • Mice
  • Battery backups
  • Cords and cables


Data Destruction

Whether you’re a company that needs to recycle a desktop computer and component parts or an individual who needs to recycle a laptop or tablet, High Tech Recycling is your go-to recycling resource. We know that the data on those old dead computers is highly sensitive and could cause you considerable grief if it gets into the wrong hands. That’s why we use two separate methods of data destruction before recycling your computers. We put your hard drives, floppy disks, and data tapes through our professional degaussing machines to ensure permanent erasure of whatever data exists on them. For your hard drives, we wipe them clean using Department Of Defense 5220.22 M-compliant software. Rest assured that the bad guys will never get your data.


Responsible Recycling

Our knowledgeable and experienced recycling experts here at High Tech Recycling are dedicated to recycling or re-purposing 100% of the items we receive, always handling them in an earth-friendly manner. Upon receipt of your computers, peripherals, and component parts, we immediately analyze them to determine whether or not they can be repaired or refurbished. If they can’t, we then break them down into their individual components before we recycle those. We know that with proper recycling methods, the raw materials they contain usually can be reintroduced into the new products manufacturing processes. Not only does this reduce the amount of waste that ends up in a landfill, but it also reduces the need to mine new raw material.

Our High Tech Recycling facility contains close to 10,000 square feet, and we are proud to report that we processed over 100 tons of electronics last year.
