Express Computer Clinic is a proud member of
Piedmont Ecycling, and currently the only drop off location in Wilkes County! We take
used, unwanted electronic items to be properly recycled. We can not accept CRT monitors or
televisions. We can accept old cell phones.
Due to ongoing technological advancement, many electronic products become obsolete within a very short period of time, creating a large surplus of unwanted electronic products, or “e-waste”. Disposing of e-waste in landfills has the potential to cause severe human and environmental health impacts. To avoid these risks, the Electronic Waste Recycling Act (Senate Bill 50) was signed into law in 2004. SB 50 established and funded a program for consumers to return, recycle, and ensure safe and environmentally sound disposal of covered electronic devices (CEDs).
It's the LAW
Computer equipment may no longer be disposed of in the landfills of North Carolina, this is in accordance to the law passed by the General Assembly. The aforementioned bill is also created to help establish opportunities for recycling for items such as lap tops, scanners, keyboards and printers.
