Green Monster e-Cycling (www.greenmonsterecycling.com) has a strict zero-landfill policy, meaning all items it collects are broken down into basic components and passed on to refineries and smelters where precious metals are harvested. By-products of all electronic components are eventually added to items such as concrete, fence posts or glass. Green Monster partners only with EPA-compliant leaders in the downstream recycling industry that have been audited.
