Computer, eWaste, & Electronics Recycling in Seattle, WA
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
When it comes to e-waste, most programs fall short. Every year, thousands of pounds of old laptops, cell phones, TVs, VCRs, and other electronics end up in Seattle landfills. These materials don’t break down easily, and true e-waste recycling is hard to come by.
Our team at R3eWaste is committed to minimizing electronic waste through electronic recycling programs. When citizens aren’t able to reuse or rehabilitate electronic equipment, it should go to a recycling company that can handle the demand. We are that company for the Seattle area.
Our Zero Landfill policy helps to keep hazardous waste such as CRTs from garbage collection sites. We are committed to keeping old electronics out of landfills, so we help you to properly dispose of your old materials. We abide by EPA regulations, and a reduce, reuse, recycle model.
We reduce the amount that goes into landfills by first reusing any machines or parts that may still be working. The rest we properly recycle to make sure that resources can be used to their full potential, rather than buried in trash.
You can track your device recycling process at no charge to see our process for keeping old technology out of landfills. We’ll give you notifications every time your device moves forward in the recycling process.

Recycling Services for Seattle, WA
There are many different types of technology that we can accept and recycle for you. Our large recycling capacity means that most devices can be brought to us for recycling. If you are unsure, just ask! We are happy to take any calls concerning recyclable materials. We’d rather that you call than make an unnecessary trip to our facility.
A lot of our waste comes from large and small businesses in the Seattle, Tacoma, Renton, and Bellevue areas. When a company upgrades its technology, replaces broken devices, or goes out of business, a lot of its supplies would normally be discarded in the trash. Our team at R3eWaste properly disposes of these items to keep their materials in circulation and to help the environment.
Though we are no longer able to offer residential pickup service, our facility accepts drop-offs from 8 am to 3 pm Monday-Friday. Simply load your old electronics into your vehicle and drop them off with us. No other computer recycling programs offer this kind of total reclaim option for residents.
Recycling Services and Data Destruction
Many companies and individuals are concerned about private information falling into the wrong hands during the recycling process. We give you peace of mind with total data destruction. All information on your hard drive will be completely erased, so there is no risk of a future machine holding your private information. Donating should not come with security breaches, and we do everything in our power to make sure that your information is safely deleted. This is a significant IT asset for many companies.
We believe in complete honesty and transparency when it comes to our guests. Through our inventory management system (IMS), you can track what’s happening with your donation. This means a few things for you.
First, our IMS system means that you have access to our company process. You can be absolutely sure that your product is actually being properly recycled or reused, rather than thrown away. Unfortunately, many “recycling” programs don’t operate this way, and still create a significant amount of waste. We want you to know that we are honest about our business.
Secondly, this means that you know what kind of return to expect when your item is resold. This is important for many company budgets, and our system allows you to see this as soon as it’s available. This provides for better planning and a happier accounting department.
