Electronics Recycling Services

Turtle Wings provides electronics recycling services. We offer pick-up at your location within DC, Maryland or Virginia for small to mid-sized companies. We accept mailed-in items or items delivered to our Capitol Heights location. We offer nationwide services for large corporations and government agencies.

We recycle keyboards, laptops, printers, monitors, and any other type of electronic or metal device. Computer equipment disposal and PC recycling are our specialties. We accept a wide range of batteries and other equipment found in data centers and offices.

If you are concerned about maintaining an audit trail, we can record serial numbers prior to recycling. We are an approved electronics recycler, and can document all stages of the recycling process to provide full compliance of our downstream vendors. We are the premier firm for electronics recycling in Maryland, Virginia and DC.  There are already many states that ban the practice of throwing electronics into landfills and we hope more follow suit.  Recycling electronics with a certified electronics recycler like Turtle Wings is an easy way to help the environment.

Upon completion of the project we can provide a Certificate of Recycling and Good Citizenship, allowing you to demonstrate to your customers and employees that your business is ecologically responsible and working for the health of the planet.

Last year, the U.S. electronics recycling industry processed 3 million to 4 million tons of used electronic equipment. Over seventy (70) percent of the equipment collected is manufactured into specification-grade commodities — including lead, aluminum, copper, circuit boards, scrap steel, glass and plastics. These valuable commodities are then sold to manufacturers in the U.S. and globally as raw material feedstock for new products.  Electronics recyclers repair, refurbish and resell functioning electronics equipment as used products into domestic and international markets. Companies also provide a number of logistical services, like collection, storage and transportation, as well as scrubbing hard drives of sensitive, personal and commercial data.
