About Fulton Metals
Located in Atlanta, GA, Fulton Metals is a large-scale bulk metal recycling center. We deal mostly with construction and demolition businesses on our high-volume scrap metal recycling side, but our company also does a booming business in buying up and recycling electronic waste. We only handle large quantities of waste, so if you have a lot of computers to get rid of, give us a call.
Why Recycle Electronic Waste?
Laptops and desktops that are broken or out-of-date can just sit in your home or office, taking up space. You’re not supposed to throw them away, but many recycling centers refuse to take them because it can be complicated to dispose of non-metal components and chemicals safely. Thankfully, it’s becoming easier to recycle computers these days.
Did you know that by recycling one million laptops, we can save energy equivalent to what 3,500 US homes use in a year? How about that for every million cell phones we recycle, we can recover 35 thousand pounds of copper, 772 pounds of silver, 75 pounds of gold, and 33 pounds of palladium? Or that manufacturing a computer and monitor takes at least 1.5 tons of water, 48 pounds of chemicals, and 530 pounds of fossil fuels?
It can be overwhelming to think about. But it all boils down to this: recycling computers and other e-waste reduce the toll on our environment. It keeps dangerous and toxic chemicals like lead and mercury out of our landfills and groundwater. Being able to reclaim and reuse metals like gold and silver lessens the burden on the mining and manufacturing industries, which reduces fossil fuel use and emissions. Even the glass and plastic can be recycled, which reduces the need for new production.

What Are My Computers Worth?
Prices for electronic waste, like all scrap metal, are given based on several factors. The first is the daily exchange rates for the various metal components. These rates change from day to day, so how much we will be paying will also vary. This is a common practice; any company that buys scrap metal adheres to this policy. We will also base the estimate on how much you’re planning to sell. We are a bulk recycler and only handle large quantities of goods. The last factor we examine is how clean the items are.
