California Electronic Asset Recovery (CEAR)
Upcoming E-Waste Drives:
CEAR's electronic recycling services prevent end-of-life equipment from being disposed of incorrectly. CEAR is a major force in diverting e-waste from landfills and at the same time providing fundraising opportunities benefitting non-profit organizations.
Here are just a few facts about CEAR:
Each household has approximately 16 lbs of e-waste sitting in their home, businesses have MUCH more. Let's work to cut this number down to a reasonable size.
Items accepted include: monitors, televisions (tube/LCD/LED/projection), desktop & laptop computers, stereos, car audio equipment, speakers, keyboards, computer mice (all computer peripherals), PDAs, digital cameras, CDs, video cassettes/Beta/DAT tapes, VCRs, compact disc players, Zip drives, telephones, cell phones, printers, copiers, laser scanners, electronic cables, fax machines, video game consoles, DVD/DVR players/recorders, microwaves, small kitchen appliances (such as mixers/ toasters), main frame computers, computer server equipment, printed circuit boards, calculators, power supply units, connectors and cables, as well as most items with a cord. CEAR physically destroys all hard drives and ships no whole units of e-waste to developing countries!
Items NOT accepted include: household appliances such as refrigerators, washers and dryers, furniture, hazardous household waste (including paint), pesticides, used oil, cleaning supplies, and tires.
If you are a business and have fluorescent light bulbs or any kind of loose batteries such as: household batteries, car batteries, computer batteries etc. Please contact us for a recycling quote.
