About Wisconsin Computer Recycling
Like most states, Wisconsin prohibits consumers and businesses from disposing of computers and other electronic equipment as trash. The reasons for this prohibition are simple: computers, CRT, plasma and LCD television sets, laser or inkjet printers, tablets, iPhones and other electronic equipment contain some materials that can damage the environment. If discarded in landfills, those materials, including lead and other metals, can leach into groundwater. To protect the environment, computers and other electronic equipment should be properly recycled, so that valuable materials are recovered and environmental damage is prevented. While the Wisconsin Environmental Protection Agency provides a website listing approved recycling businesses and organization, that website can be difficult to find and lacks useful features such as interactive maps that make it easy for consumers to find the computer and electronics drop-off sites.
In 2013, Computer Lifeline, a Minneapolis-based IT service company, created this public service website. It is designed to make finding computer and electronics recycling services easy for everyone in Wisconsin. This website and Computer Lifeline are not affiliated with any recycling company or organization and do not charge any company or organization to be listed. The free directory website is designed to make information about computer recycling easy to access and to allow consumers and businesses to find these high-tech recycling services quickly and easily, anywhere in Wisconsin. Since the website was launched, tens of thousands of Wisconsin residents have accessed this site and have found the resources they need.
