The Environmental Impact of Electronics Waste on the Earth

According to the United Nations, 20 to 50 million metric tons of e-waste are discarded every year.

That’s a lot of waste!

At DRC Technologies, we aim to change those numbers by keeping electronics waste out of our landfills, our earth, and our water

And, thanks to our customers, we helped recycle over 34,000 pounds of e-waste in 2019!

Our Services

We offer e-waste recycling at our retail location in Northampton, PA.  And, unlike the occasional County or Township events, we’re open five days a week for convenient drop off.

  • We take most anything with a plug: from computers, TVs, phones & air conditioners to hair dryers, razors & electric weed whackers.
  • Most electronics are free to recycle.  We do have to charge for some items due to the chemicals/heavy metals in their components (see the list below).
  • Anyone can participate in our electronics recycling program. You don’t need to be a resident of any particular county, township, or borough.
  • We offer data transfer services in the event that you need your documents, photos, and music transferred from one electronic device to another.
  • We offer hard drive destruction for a nominal fee. Our services gives you peace of mind that any personal information won’t be able to be accessed by others.

COVID-19 Update for E-waste

We are currently accepting electronics waste via no contact drop-off and by appointment only. Please see our COVID-19 update page for further information or contact us to set up an appointment.
