Eco-Friendly Disposal Techniques

EPA Guidelines

When you sell your used computers through Capitol Asset Recovery, you'll enjoy the peace of mind knowing they'll be disposed of in an environmentally responsible way.

The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act prohibits the incineration or landfill disposal of equipment containing certain hazardous metals, eight of which are found in all computers and monitors. End users (that is, you) are responsible for the environmentally safe disposal of this used computer equipment.

Here's an excerpt from an article by the U.S. Geological Survey:

The metals contained in PCs commonly include aluminum, antimony, arsenic, barium, beryllium, cadmium, chromium, cobalt, copper, gallium, gold, iron, lead, manganese, mercury, palladium, platinum, selenium, silver, and zinc. Eight of these metals are listed as hazardous by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), one of the Federal laws that control the disposal of waste in the United States.

If you sell your old computers to Capitol Asset Recovery instead of scrapping them, you won't have to worry about violating these regulations. We'll pay you for newer equipment, which we'll dispose of responsibly, and we charge a reasonable fee for the disposal of scrap equipment.
