Circuit Board Recycling
How are Circuit Boards Recycled?
When we receive circuit boards, they are immediately graded and separated into large bins according to type. For example, computer motherboards are separated from power supply boards. Some preparation may be required, such as the removal of heavy attachments such as heat sinks, etcetera.
Once a certain amount of circuit boards have accumulated, the boards are sent to refiners who extract the precious metals. This material can be reused in new electronics, jewelry, and a number of other products.
