Electronics Recycling

eWaste Michigan

Bay Area Recycling for Charities recycles anything with a plug. In partnership with eRecycle TC, we properly recycle, reuse or repurpose your electronics while protecting the environment. Each year millions of pounds of eWaste is dumped into the landfill. These items take hundreds of years to break down and leak harmful toxins into our air, water and soil. Help solve the problem and call BARC for your broken or obsolete computers and electronics.

FAQ's About Electronic Recycling with BARC

eWaste means Electronic Waste. Common items include: TVs, computers, office equipment, printers, entertainment devices, DVD players, mobile phones, small kitchen appliances, and batteries.

No, these household appliances contain Freon which needs to be properly discharged before it can be safely recycled. This means it cannot be lumped in with all the other eWaste items. However, they can be recycled and BARC can take care of this for you. Learn more here. (link to refrigerator recycling).
