Every day, thousands of laptops and other computer products are tossed into Bay Area landfills where they leach hazardous substances like cadmium, mercury and lead into the environment. Many components are made of glass, plastic and metal that can be recovered, reused, and recycled.
Cal Micro is committed to the conservation of resources and a sustainable approach to the disposal of old or unwanted notebooks, computers, and computer parts and accessories. We are happy to provide our San Jose customers with laptop and computer recycling-in many cases completely free of charge.* Some items do require a small fee.
We will make every effort to refurbish the newer equipment and/or recycle as many of the recyclable components as possible. Materials that have no market value, or are hazardous in nature will be disposed of in an environmentally sound manner.
