We are committed to protecting the environment. That’s why we have a no landfill policy.
We make every effort to reuse and refurbish donated equipment. However, when reuse isn’t an option MCFS guarantees that any equipment that cannot be refurbished is recycled. All of the recycled materials are reduced to their smallest component parts and processed domestically – we never export hazardous materials out of the country.
There is no cost to donate most types of equipment. We do charge a small environmental fee for products containing CRT (leaded) glass. A list of our fees can be found in our FAQ.
Each year we undergo a detailed audit to ensure that our processes comply with strict standards. The certifications below demonstrate our commitment to the environment. Equipment donors can be assured that we are a trusted partner for secure information destruction and recycling of end-of-life electronics. Check out our data security practices to learn more about our secure data destruction procedures.
In 2014, MCFS recycled 261,614 pounds of computer waste.
MCFS is a proud member of ReUSE Minnesota.
