Computer electronics recycling is easy to do and good for you. All Smart phones, laptops, computers, computer accessories, and computer components, can be recycled. This includes monitors, hard drives, motherboards, keyboards, external hard drives, USB flash drives, and pretty much any other part of a computer. Many computer components do not biodegrade. Please don’t dispose of your computer by throwing it away.
Could my data be stolen if I throw my computer (or USBDrive etc….) away or recycle it?
It’s possible that someone could remove a computer or hard drive from the trash and retrieve private information from it. If you have sensitive data saved such as medical information, financial data, or passwords, you may need to securely wipe the drive before disposal.
