    Changing the face of Computer Recycling Seattle

     

    In Tacoma Washington. A small time grass roots computer recycling company is chaning the ways people think of computer and electronic recycling.

     

    SBK Recycle is a small 3 man operation. Yet they seem to recycle just as much as the bigger companies with alot more man power.

     

    We have a very simple motto "Reuse everything we can" says Kenny Becker the owner of SBK Recycle. We want people to know there are recycling companies out there who are truly wanting to reuse items. Everything that comes through our doors is tested to see if it works. If it is something we can fix, donate or resell we will do it. On average we are taking in around 150,000lbs a month in computer and electronic items. With less than 1% going into the trash.

     

    Computer recycling should be about extending life not destroying it early.
