The mission of Horizon Electronic Recycling is to employ people with disabilities and to provide an ethical and responsible way of recycling.
We are a local 501c3 non-profit organization that employs adults with disabilities to disassemble electronic waste. The mission of Horizon Electronic Recycling is to employ people with disabilities and to provide an ethical and responsible way of recycling. The recycling fees go directly toward the wages we pay to our employees and pre-process materials so they can be used again in manufacturing of new products. Our focus is not on fixing the items that come into the shop, but instead tearing them apart!
Benefits to the local communities include: jobs, particularly for a segment of the population that has difficulty finding work; taxpayer savings from not having to provide as much assistance to residents who now have employment; a place for people to recycle electronics; and elimination of electronic waste in landfills.
By recycling your electronics you are insuring that hazardous waste does not leak into the earth, endangering plants, animals, water & human health. These items often contain toxic elements like lead, mercury, cadmium, beryllium, and arsenic. If they get dumped in a landfill, they pose a threat to clean water and healthy soils. We insure that all electronics are ethically handled in every way.
We carefully disassemble each element & distribute pieces to environmentally responsible downstream recyclers, E-Steward Certified Recyclers, to be remade into new products.
