Electronic waste is a growing problem, but SkipTheDepot makes it easy to dispose of these items safely and responsibly. Their partners specialize in dismantling electronics and separating the various components for recycling or reuse. This includes extracting metals like copper and gold, which can be reused in the manufacture of new electronics, and disposing of hazardous materials like batteries and mercury. By donating your electronics through SkipTheDepot, you are supporting our organization and protecting the environment.
