In 2012, the Illinois Landfill Ban went into effect.  No electronics can be sent to area landfills.  We de-manufacture or break down electronic equipment, reducing it to either components or commodities.  Recycling these materials prevents toxic materials such as lead, mercury, and alumium from entering the soil and ground water.

We maintain the highest standard of data security that assures legal compliance for the various regulations concerning electronics recycling.  All hard drives are destroyed and recycled.  We are an active member of the Illinois Recycling association and SWANA. Upon request, we are able to provide certificates of destruction for any of the materials we recycle. 

Electronic Recycling Law Changes

Effective January 1, 2019

Since 2009, Secure Processors has followed the guidelines as outlined in the Electronic Waste Recycling Law.  The previous law, has since been overhauled due to its ineffectiveness, and loss/closing of local electronic recyclers leaving most portions of the State without options for recycling their electronics.  Secure Processors was able to weather the storm and the financial burden of paying for the electronic glass recycling (primarily TVs and CRT Monitors) for nine years.  We have provided free glass recycling, as required by law, to Clay County and surrounding counties residential consumers.

The new Consumer Electronics Recycling Act, formally went into effect January 1, 2019.  The new Act allows Electronic Recyclers, independent of a manufacturer e-waste program, to continue to operate, and allows independent electronics recyclers to charge residential consumers for recycling the glass.  Therefore, Secure Processors has implemented a 50 cent per pound charge for electronic glass recycling.  This fee will be used to offset the costs incurred for paying our down stream glass recycling company, transportation for recycling to this company, and our material and labor charges.  These fees may change in the future as determined by market standards.

With the new Act, Secure Processors also had the option to cease accepting residential electronics for recycling.  Rather than see TVs scattered in fields and ditches in Clay County, we chose to continue to accept these materials.  We all share in the responsibility of keeping the local environment clean, and the new law will allow us to remain open, providing a valuable service to the community.
