PowerHouse Recycling is the market leader in the re-use and recycling of electronics in the state of North Carolina. When you are ready to get rid of your unwanted and obsolete electronic devices, it’s crucial that their disposal is handled by professionals, so as not to cause harm to the environment.
Computers, phones and other e-waste contain hazardous materials, such as mercury and leaded glass, that are harmful to the environment. However, electronics often contain non-renewable resources that can – and should – be reclaimed. At PowerHouse Recycling Inc, we separate materials such as plastic, copper and aluminum from the electronic waste so they can be given new life.

Either through our automated shredding and separation system or manual tear down line, all electronics will be broken down and separated to commodity levels; i.e. plastics, metal, circuit boards. These base commodities are then sent off to be refined, smelted, or recycled into clean commodities to be reused in worldwide production, a full-circle process.
How electronic waste hurts North Carolina
Electronics contain materials that are harmful to the soil, the environment and our communities. Televisions and computer monitors, for example, contain high concentrations of lead. Cell phones contain cadmium, which is a carcinogen to humans, known for causing damage to the lungs and liver.
In 2011 our state passed legislation banning the disposal of computers and televisions from landfills.
