25 years in the

computer e-waste

recycling field.

JGL Recycling has given companies a responsible option to dispose end of life cycle and surplus computer equipment.

A little About Us

All companies face the task of safely disposing of older equipment and their e-waste. The EPA estimates that as many as 500 million computers e-waste will soon become obsolete. As businesses upgrade existing PCs, more computers and other e-waste are finding their way into the waste stream. According to the EPA, over two million tons of electronics waste is discarded each year and goes to U.S. landfills.

Now you have a partner in the computer e-waste recycling business who understands your need to safely dispose of your computer and electronic equipment in an environmentally responsible manner. By promoting reuse - computer recycling and electronic recycling - JGL Recycling extends the life of computer equipment and reduces e-waste. Recycle your computers, recycle your electronics.

Recycling Electronic Waste

Rapidly growing technological advances are rendering formerly cutting- edge electronics obsolete. An estimated 20 million personal computers became obsolete in 1998. Fewer than 6 percent were recycled. Currently the useful life of a computer is 3 to 5 years and shrinking. In 2005, more than 63 million personal computers are projected to be retired according to a recent study by the National Safety Council.

Some electronic products (notably those with cathode ray tubes or CRTs and circuit boards contain hazardous or toxic materials such as lead, mercury, cadmium, chromium, and some types of flame- retardants in amounts that may be defined as hazardous under federal law. In particular, the glass screens, or CRTs in computer monitors and televisions can contain as much as 27 percent lead.

Recycling Metals

The three categories of metals are: ferrous, non-ferrous, and precious.

Ferrous metals contain iron and are magnetic. These are low-cost metals and are recycled in vast amounts. Steel and cast iron are ferrous metals. Ferrous metals can be found in industrial applications such as grinders, nuts & bolts, cutting tools, pipes, gears, automobiles, garden tools and machinery.

Non-ferrous metals do not contain iron, are non-magnetic and have a higher value. These metals include aluminum, copper, stainless steel, brass, lead, and zinc. These metals are typically found in aircraft parts, window frames, vehicle parts, electrical wire, cables, water pipes and casting. Precious metals have the highest value, these metals include: gold, silver, platinum, titanium, and nickel alloys.
