It is our goal to provide the most affordable recycling services possible to our community.
Due to recent changes in recycling markets, it has become
more expensive & labor intensive for us to disassemble televisions containing wood.
Because of these changes, we have been forced to raise our prices on these items.
We understand that these items are heavy and can incur a significant cost for ethical recycling.
Please be assured that we are doing everything that we can to keep our pricing as low as possible during these market fluctuations.
