Ecovery will charge a $ 10 fee per television and a $1 fee per monitor due to the high content of hazardous waste (i.e. lead/mercury) that must be disposed of properly.

Ecovery is committed to responsible recycling and separating all hazardous materials to meet U.S. Environmental Protection Agency requirements. They offer documentation that guarantees protection and eliminates liability associated with the hazards of electronics. Hard drives are completely destroyed in a hammermill and pulverized in an impact mill so that the materials they are made of can be recycled & to ensure your company's safe data destruction. All equipment is handled safely to protect their customers, employees, and the environment.
