Chicopee, MA - Computer Recycling and Trade Ins
I offer free computer removal of old and or broken computers. CTR monitors used to be worth money because of there copper content. Because of the recent decline in precious metals they are no longer worth my time to recycling them, printers have the same problem. There maybe other places still willing to take them off of peoples hands. Usually your local department of public works will have something in place to assist people with older electronic recycling. I except the donations of broken and older computers. If you have a computer that is broken I maybe willing to travel to pick it up. If it has any value I might be able to offer you some cash. Older computers and laptops will have to be dropped off at my location. I can remove the hard drive for you and let you keep it for peace of mind. I can also thoroughly erasing the hard drive when you arrive.
Disposing of a computer can be very dangerous. The hard drive might have a lot of personal data on it, which if it gets into the wrong hands can put you at risk of identity theft, bank fraud, and could potentially cost you a lot of money. I completely zero out all three layers of a hard drive which typically can take up to eight hours. If your are donating your computer I do not charge for this service. All my zeroing out of hard drives is done to U.S. Department of Defense standards. I use a licensed version of a data scrubbing program called Kill Disk, it doesn't just simple reformat the hard drive, it completely erases all three layers of the drive. It is the same software the government uses when transferring or disposing of a computer. When donating your computer you will always receive this service.
Everything that I'm not able to salvage will be scraped and taken to a scrap metal and plastic recycling plant. Nothing will be illegally disposed of. I have a blue website but a green hart.
If you are looking to buy a new custom built computer or a used computer or laptop and want to trade in a working or broken computer, I maybe able to give you credit off your purchase price.
Getting rid of an old computer can be a problem. In addition to possible data theft, there is the recycling problem. Major department stores charge $50 (or more) to dispose of a computer. With me, if your computer is less than 10 years old, there is no charge. If your computer is less than 4 years old, I may be able to offer you money for it! This offer is good for both desktops and laptops.
