Mebtec is a computer and electronics collection and dismantling center located in Mebane, NC. Their facility handles the dismantling and sorting of donated computers and other electronics into their base components (e.g. plastic casings, circuit boards, metal pieces, etc.), then ships those components off to various companies, many located in NC, to be recycled. Mebtec accepts everything from hair dryers to RC cars to PCs; for a full list of accepted items, check out the E-Waste Items section of their website.
Mebtec also offers DoD-certified hard drive erasure and physical hard drive destruction for that sensitive computer data you want to keep from falling into the wrong hands.
We will be working with Mebtec in the coming months to create more recycling drive opportunities around our community to help keep computers and other electronics out of our landfills.
