Keyboard and Mouse Recycling
How are keyboards and mice recycled?
Keyboards and mice can often be reused. However, when they are no longer able to be used, our keyboards are sent to a facility in the United States where they are de-manufactured. We are extremely pleased to be working with this innovative, domestic processor because of their ability to efficiently dismantle our keyboards. Most recyclers simply shred or bale and export their keyboards. However, because our vendor dismantles the keyboards, there are many more uses for the recycled material. These materials recovered from keyboards include plastic, rubber, wire, metal, and Mylar.
Mice are taken apart and recycled for their plastic, wire, and circuit boards when applicable.
