VGraphix provides electronics recycling in St. Charles, St. Louis, Warren and Lincoln counties in Missouri.
Recycling electronics is an important service we provide to our community. Electronics, computers, laptops and other related items are toxic to the environment. These products contain heavy metals including gold, silver, platinum, palladium, copper, tin and zinc. Recycling these items not only keeps these dangerous contaminants out of the landfill but also reduces the need for new raw materials to produce goods.
Most recycling is provided free of charge, the only exception being monitors and TV’s which incur a nominal disposal fee. Current fees for screen disposal are:
- Monitors (19” or Smaller) – $5
- Monitors (20”or Greater) – $10
- Flat Screen Monitors – $5
Security is also a concern when recycling a computer, laptop, cell phone, or any other item that may contain your personal data. Hard drives are data wiped using US D.O.D. (Dept of Defense) level software and then destroyed, eliminating the risk of your data being compromised.
