Does C&I resell computer equipment?
We no longer resell computer equipment, but if you are looking for gently used electronics, we have partnered with computerparts.com and they may have what you’re looking for. Their inventory is always changing, so it is a good idea to check their website frequently. They have helped many individuals, students, small businesses, and even IT departments with hard-to-find items.
Why should I recycle my electronics?
Firstly, recycling, in general, is just good practice. Electronics contain materials that are hazardous to the environment which in turn is unhealthy for people. Secondly, in most states, including Indiana, throwing your electronics away in a landfill is illegal due to the hazardous materials that all electronics contain.
What are the hazardous materials in electronics?
- Lead, mercury, cadmium, and brominated flame retardants are among the substances of concern in electronics. These substances are included in electronic products for important performance characteristics but can cause problems if the products are not properly managed at end of life.
- Lead is used in glass in TV and monitor cathode ray tubes (CRTs), as well as solder and interconnects. Older CRTs typically contain on average 4 lbs. of lead and sometimes as much as 7 lbs. of lead, while newer CRTs contain closer to 2 lbs. of lead.
- Mercury is used in small amounts in bulbs to light flat panel computer monitors, TVs, and notebooks.
- Brominated flame retardants are widely used as a fire retardant in plastic cases and cables. The more problematic ones have been phased out of newer products but remain in older products.
- Cadmium was widely used in Ni-Cad rechargeable batteries for laptops and other portables. Newer batteries (nickel-metal hydride and lithium ion) do not contain cadmium.
- Visit the EPA’s website that contains this and a lot more information on recycling.

C&I holds R2v3, ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015, and ISO 45001: 2018, which are the internationally recognized certifications for responsible recycling and quality, environmental, health, and safety management systems. We are regularly audited by third-party organizations to ensure our processes are meeting these standards. Our strict No-Export and No-Landfill policies ensure all electronic devices that enter our facility are properly recycled, reused, or resold without ever being shipped to a landfill or a developing country.
Most importantly, our standards are in place to provide our clients with the confidence that their equipment is processed to the highest secure, ethical, and environmental standards possible.
