How ERC Recycles Tablets
Tablets yield a lot of valuable, recyclable commodities, including steel, aluminum, power/breakage boards, copper, and even wood. So, recyclers must break down older tablets made of leaded glass that can potentially harm the environment and cause adverse human health effects piece by piece.
Many Tablets received by ERC are still functional. So, these tablets are tested, entered into our proprietary tracking software, and, when possible, refurbished and resold. This re-purposing helps give new life to gently used tablets and mice.
