Do you do residential recycling pick-ups?

Only corporations are picked up by us; individuals are not. However, dropping off your old TV at our recycling site in Albuquerque is simple. We can also arrange a pick-up if you happen to be a business with TVs that need to be recycled.

Why is there a charge for TV recycling?

When we charge a processing fee as an Albuquerque electronics recycling facility, it’s to help alleviate the expense of the recycling operation. No fee is necessary if we can sell enough parts to cover our expenses. However, TV recycling is a more extensive process, and as a result, we must pay higher costs for recycling some of the components, which explains the extra cost.
