What happens to these items after I leave them at a recycling station?

  • Cans, bottles and glass are taken back to distribution centers in trucks already making trips and recycled at local recyclers. We don't add additional fuel or energy consumption as part of this program.
  • Plastic bags are sold to multiple vendors who recycle and reuse the material. Some vendors convert the plastic into composite decking.
  • Electronics waste is collected by a national vendor who resells them for reuse, refurbishing or recycling. Anything that can't be reused is scrapped by certified companies that dispose of the materials in environmentally friendly ways.
Additionally, we assure you that all personal data is wiped from recycled devices and our vendors provide proof of data destruction.
