CompuCycle responsibly recycles all residential equipment we receive in conformance with R2 (Responsible Recycling) standards we are certified for. This means that equipment is broken down into it's component parts. For example in the case of a PC; power supplies, motherboards, processors, plastic, metal, floppy drives, hard drives, cables etc. Once broken down they are then sent to a various certified refineries that recycle and recover any materials that can be reused in other manufacturing processes. No equipment ever ends up in the landfills!
