Electronics contain hard metals, plastics, and chemicals that are harmful to the environment. As a result, electronic devices should be recycled or disposed of in a safe manner that reduces their negative impact on the environment.
Many electronics recycling companies use large magnets and other tools to ensure your data on any computers, hard drives, or other devices is erased. However, it's always best practice to back up your data and wipe your devices yourself before taking them to a drop-off location.
OmniSource Electronics Recycling takes various devices in the Fort Wayne/Allen County area.
