All recycling companies work a little different.
The 'NO CHARGE FOR SERVICES' works...
One company, in the Tampa Bay area does not charge for shredding. Urban E Recycling is a recycling company that responsibly disposes computers and other electronics. All the equipment that they handle is disassembled and eventually processed into precious and semiprecious metals. In January of 2016, Urban E Recycling, decided wiping to DoD standards was not good enough. Urban E sold this wiping/erasing machines to a local company that wanted to reuse their disks.
The ‘NO CHARGE FOR SERVICES’ works because they recycle the end-of-life electronics by the volume. In other words; they scrap the electronics. Shredding is just a free perk they offer for your electronic scrap.
