Circuit Board Recycling

How are circuit boards recycled?

When circuit boards are transported to our recycling facility or are removed from equipment, they are immediately graded and separated into large bins according to type. For example, computer motherboards are separated from power supply boards. Some preparation may be required, such as the removal of heavy attachments. For example: heat sinks etc. When enough circuit boards have been accumulated, the boards are sent to refiners who extract the precious metals. This material can be reused in new electronics, jewelry, and a number of other products.
