How Many Keyboards and Mice are Recycled?
According to the EPA, in 2010 there were 67,800 tons of keyboards and mice disposed of. Only 10% of the keyboards and mice were recycled. That’s 61,020 tons of keyboards and mice that didn’t get properly disposed of and potentially ended up in landfills or incinerators! You can make a difference by recycling your old keyboards by a keyboard recycling service.

Rocycle collects large quantities of keyboards to reuse and sell when possible. Otherwise, if they are non-functioning, damaged, or obsolete, we send them to our downstream partners that will break the keyboards back down into the raw materials which are given new life as other products.
