Safe and Secure Information Destruction
If you want your computer recycled safely and your data destroyed, Great Lakes Electronics is the company you have been looking for. The demanufacturing process takes old electronics (computers, servers, cable boxes, TVs and more) and breaks them down into their various components. Anything that contains personal, proprietary, or sensitive information is destroyed in the companies giant shredder and other components are recycled.

Great Lakes Electronics has a ZERO LANDFILL Policy
The volume of old or obsolete computers and electronics increases dramatically every year. The National Safety Council estimated that over 500 million PC’s have been relegated to scrap in the United States as of 2007. These old PC’s contain hazardous amounts of toxic heavy metals including lead, cadmium and mercury, and it is critical to the environment to keep these materials from landfills and incinerators.

Through environmentally responsible disposal, GLE helps you turn these liabilities into assets. Components of value are allocated for reuse or recovery of raw materials. Remaining scraps are then properly recycled by permitted associate facilities.

We recycle all types of electronic equipment containing circuit boards, cathode ray tubes, ferrous and non-ferrous metals. No minimum shipments.

GLE customers are issued Certificates of Recycle for each shipment processed.
