Evanston, Illinois Pickup and Drop Off Options for Electronic Recycling Clients
Evanston, IL-06 January 2014. Electronic recycling is gaining utmost popularity these days with increased awareness about environmental safety. In Illinois, residents in major cities like Evanston participate in ecycling as their way of helping the community and the environment.
Evanston, a city found in the northeastern part of Illinois, has approximately 77,000 residents in 2012. This population count in the suburban Illinois city put the area at risk of increasing electronic waste due to residents and commercial establishments needing to dispose their appliances or other electronic devices. AVA Electronic Recycling is a prominent company that gives way to effective and budget-friendly ecycling for regular consumers and business owners.
The Power to Choose
Aside from impressing numerous clients with its services, AVA also grants the city’s residents two options in bringing electronic wastes to their shops for recycling. First, the company offers pickup services. Many consumers love this service because of its offered convenience, particularly for those wishing to transport a huge number of electronic units. Furthermore, the company offers low cost TV pick up; a great way for residents and commercial clients to save money.
Another option is drop off, which is a great for consumers who are near drop off points and only has few units to deliver. Consumers have the power to choose according to what they find beneficial in the long run.
AVA Electronic Recycling makes pickup service much easier by assigning different pickup zones within the state. Evanston is within Zone 3, which is also the same zone for Chicago pick up service. The company has three pickup zones and a custom zone for cities that are out of the covered areas in the first three zones. This allows clients to work with the company for ecycling through their convenient pickup services.
Pickup service is beneficial and cost effective. Base rates are cheaper compared to similar companies. Fuel charges apply depending on the number and sizes of units to transport. Aside from relatively affordable rates, the company picks up units on smaller fleets after receiving two to three calls for the service. This is cheaper than dispatching a transport truck for a single pickup.
Drop Off Sites
People who prefer to avoid pickup fees and have lighter electronic wastes to transport can choose to drop them off in the nearest site. For Evanston, the assigned drop off site is at Maple Avenue. Clients, however, must check drop off details like handling fees and what appliances are accepted at the respective drop off sites.
Without a doubt, clients can get the company to pick up electronic wastes or drop them off personally in certain sites. Know more about these options by checking AVA Electronic Recycling’s webpage if you need to dispose off your electronic appliances.

#1- It takes 539 lbs of fossil fuel, 48 lbs of chemicals, and 1.5 tons of water to manufacture one computer and monitor.
#2- A large number of what is labeled as "e-waste" is actually not waste at all, but rather whole electronic equipment or parts that are readily marketable for reuse or can be recycled for materials recovery.
#3- Recycling 1 million laptops saves the energy equivalent to the electricity used by 3,657 U.S. homes in a year.
#4- For every 1 million cell phones that are recycled, 35,274 lbs of copper, 772 lbs of silver, 75 lbs of gold, and 33 lbs of palladium can be recovered.
#5- 80 to 85% of electronic products were discarded in landfills or incinerators, which can release certain toxics into the air.
#6- Only 12.5% of e-waste is currently recycled.
The key to this is to recycle. Most people use a cell phone for less than a year, and if those of us planning on buying a shiny new iPhone or Galaxy S5 can be convinced to recycle our old phones, we’d be doing the planet a huge favor. Our old phones can not only be used by others, but the cash we get from selling them can help fund our next purchase. At the same time, by selling or donating an old phone, we’re keeping it from adding to the rubbish in our landfills, and also enabling someone else to obtain an affordable phone. Hence, if you aren’t already practicing it, you should take an initiative to recycle old cell phones and other e-waste in your household.
