LET’S RECYCLE FOR THE FUTURE OF OUR KIDS
Technology advances at such a hasty manner, it is getting harder and harder to catch up with it. A Computer that is purchased for over $1000 can turn into a slow machine within only couple years. And this rapid advancement pushing us to become one of those close followers of the technology; otherwise the life gives us hard time to follow with the rest of the world. Nowadays, everything is on electronic platforms, and there is no easy way to blend in life with an outdated device. And this consuming process is becoming to threat maybe not our world, but our kids’ world. For this obvious reason, we are asking you to be responsible, and recycle your electronics with us!
What happens to those outdated or obsolete electronics?

How do we recycle electronics ?
The main idea behind recycling electronics is avoiding them from the landfill. For this purpose, we shouldn’t trash our electronics just like your scrap papers or plastics which are equally dangerous to our World. However, electronics recycling is much more complicated than recycling paper or plastics considering the mixed materials within their structures. Here at Techworld, we follow the steps below to recycle the electronics you dropped off;
When we receive a recycled electronics; if it is not in re-usable condition, we take it to our recycling section at our warehouse. If it is in reusable condition, and if the effort to fix it covers its reselling value, we take them to our testing stations. Frankly speaking, 90% of the cases ended up with in our recycling section because of the high costs in repairing them, or low demand in re-using old electronics.
Then what happens at our recycling section? We start parting the electronics out as we receive them. We separate metal from plastic, logic boards from chassis, LCDs from covers, and take all those parted items to big California E-Recycling Centers after we reach certain amount of pallets to fill.
This is a serious commitment and long process where we need to put too much effort to satisfy our recycling cycle; however, Techworld would love to see our children grow up in a TOXIC FREE environment!
