Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
Do you have a list of items you accept for recycling?
Do you have minimum quantity pickup requirements for businesses?
Must the equipment be on a pallet before being picked up?
NO, The best possible way to transport LARGE QUANTITY of obsolete computer equipment is on pallets. Gaylord (Bulk) boxes (a 4′ cube, heavy cardboard box that is filled on a pallet) provide the best stability.
We have found that neatly stacking components, even monitors, on a pallet will be stable for transport if shrink wrapped well.
While having the equipment packed or palletized prior to pick up is ideal and results in a quick pick up, we know some businesses are located in High rise buildings, office parks, or locations without a loading dock, or have no Pallets or Boxes to prepare the equipment for pick up.
