We’re once again partnering with MRC for electronics recycling pickup. This company is registered with the EPA and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and holds R2/RIOS Certification through its Park Hills facility.

The proper destruction of hard drives and the information contained on them is an essential service that MRC offers. Rest assured that when you bring a computer, phone or other device with sensitive information on it, MRC will wipe it clean so no one is able to view or use it.
