Drop-Off Option

Turtle Wings is committed to making recycling electronics as easy and convenient as possible so we now offer a drop-off option for electronics recycling. We accept drop-offs of items at the address below Monday through Friday between 8:30 AM and 2:30 PM (no appointment needed).

There is no charge for most electronics with the following exceptions.  CRT monitors are $20 each.  CRT televisions are $2 per diagonal inch. LCD televisions are $10.00 for televisions less than 30 inches and $20.00 for televisions greater than 30 inch.  Alkaline batteries are $2.00/lb. These items contain materials that are difficult and costly to recycle properly, hence the charge.  For example, CRT’s contain large quantities of lead in the leaded glass which needs to be treated properly per federal regulations.

In addition to recycling electronics, our facility is capable of recycling batteries, metal and more. A complete list is available on our Acceptable Items List (PDF)

We can also perform hard drive shredding services for those customers wanting an extra level of data security. Shredding fees vary by service level required.

Turtle Wings is an ISO certified company which holds the federal government contract for computer recycling. We believe in keeping electronics out of landfills and we pledge to do our utmost to implement that. Our computer recycling is done domestically in full compliance with all local, state and federal regulations.
