As of June 8th, 2012, residents of Texas are now able to drop off their e-waste at four conveniently located Amazing Spaces storage locations.

“It’s really fantastic to see Amazing Spaces take charge in diverting electronic waste that typically ends up in our landfills. Their commitment to preserving the quality of our environment certainly raises the bar for the rest of the industry.” says Mike Wachtel, President of GREENspot DROPoff.

Electronic waste, or e-waste for short, can pose a serious threat to the environment and human health when disposed of improperly. When e-waste is exposed to the elements (in dumps or landfills), chemical compounds and heavy metals such as lead have the ability to leach into our groundwater, and when ingested, can cause serious damage to the central nervous system.

When e-waste is dropped off at an Amazing Spaces location, it is sent to either an R2 or e-Stewards certified recycler for processing. Once at the processing facility, the material is sorted by type and either dismantled, shredded, or both.

Certain items, like CRT monitors and televisions must be processed separately (due to the high volume of lead) and are usually sent downstream to a specialized glass facility that can separate the lead from the glass panels. Usually the glass will still contain trace amounts of lead, thereby prohibiting its use in most consumer applications.

The material that is shredded is then separated into different commodities like ferrous metals (iron-based metals), non-ferrous metals and plastics. These materials are then sent to manufacturers for reuse in new products.

The GREENspot program is open to the general public and collects items such as:

• Computer monitors
• PC boards
• Computers
• Laptops
• Computer mice
• Fax machines
• Printers
• DVD players
• VCR/Beta
• Cables and cords
• Stereo components
• Hard drives
• Tape and zip drives
• Radios
• Loose PCBAs (printed circuit board assemblies)
• Optical drives
• Oscilloscopes
• Most miscellaneous e-waste.

GREENspot, with the commitment of companies like Amazing Spaces, are helping to divert these materials from reaching landfills.

“It’s a huge challenge in so many ways” says Dan Jaeggi, GM at GREENspot. “…but by partnering with environmentally conscious companies like Amazing Spaces Storage Center, we’re able to provide the general public with a no-cost, convenient and responsible recycling solution for their end of life electronics.”
