Do you do residential recycling pick-ups?

We do not do pick-ups for individuals, only for businesses. However, it’s easy to come by our recycling facility in Albuquerque and simply drop off your old TV. Or, if you happen to be a business with TVs you need to recycle, we can schedule a pick-up for those.

Why is there a charge for TV recycling?

As an Albuquerque electronics recycling center, when we charge a processing fee, it’s to help us cover our costs for the recycling process. If we’re able to sell parts to cover our costs, then we don’t need to charge a fee. But TV recycling is a more involved process, and we have to pay higher prices for recycling some of the components, thus the additional charge.
