AOK Computer Recycling does not export. The point of recycling
is to preserve our environment. Exportation of metals is detrimental
to the planet in two ways:
- Remanufacture and New Manufacture are most ecologically sound
when materials are indigenous or harvested near points of use.
- Exported metals land in less developed countries for cheap
labor tear down. These communities are NOT equipped to deal with
toxic processing by-products and are inadvertently destroying
their own habitats.
Environmentally Responsible chain of action is
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
Upgrade, Repair, Reconfigure your company computers. Through the
practice of reuse and repair the useful life of computers and other
types of electronic technology can be extended saving money, natural
resources and wear on the environment. Set up a Consultation with

Re-sell surplus computers. By making surplus computers available
to employees at nominal rates, an organization can provide a low-cost
benefit to its workforce or enable staff to work at home using equipment
that is familiar to them. Reuse reduces the amount of toxic and
hazardous substances that may enter the environment through disposal.
By extending the useful life of products energy and raw materials
needed to manufacture new products are conserved which reduces the
pollution associated with energy use and manufacturing.. Set up

everyone to support the environment by repairing, reselling, or
