About Yard

This concept brings recycling into a boutique environment with crisp design and lighting patterned on today’s most successful retailers. Additionally, we offer a diverse portfolio of commercial recycling solutions, ranging from 100% guaranteed responsible IT recycling/remarketing to industrial scrap metal bin placement service.

Community outreach is in our DNA.

One Earth makes donating to local non-profit organizations easy and convenient. You can donate any percentage of your recycling monies to any of our NPO partners; whether or not you donate, we donate for every pound of qualifying transactions*.

Recycle. Get More Money. Shop Sustainably.Be Good To Your Future.

  • Land-filling is not sustainable; eventually we are going to run out of space.
  • Natural resources are finite: manufacturers enjoy substantial cost savings by incorporating recycled content into new products.
  • Mining of virgin resources like metals and petroleum for plastics is more expensive and more environmentally detrimental than recycling.
  • One Earth diverges from conventional "environmentalist" approaches: instead of demonizing consumption, we embrace consumerism and technology as the core of our unprecedented quality of life.
  • One Earth makes the responsible retirement of used goods an integrated part of the process of procuring new goods and services.

Electronics Scrap

One Earth offers a responsible, accountable e-recycling solution as part of the shopping landscape, 7 days a week.One Earth Recycling is part of a 3-generation, 30+ year old company that is among the pioneers of the electronic scrap industry in California. We specialize in marketing for reuse, but whatever can't be reused is responsibly recycled, and is completely spared from the waste stream. We accord with the strict CAL-EPA guidelines as a certified recycler of electronic equipment. Additionally, we guarantee identity security/data destruction in the case of data storage devices like hard drives and mobile phones. We use Department of Defense-approved software to achieve "soft" elimination of data in order to promote reuse; we can also certify physical destruction of hardware, according to your organization’s requirements.

Reuse vs. Recycle

One Earth Recycling specializes in marketing outdated electronic materials for reuse. Less affluent populations around the world desperately need Americans' cast-off technology: before designating e-scrap streams for recycling, we exhaust reuse possibilities for collected materials, either as whole units (i.e. erase data, recondition and re-market complete systems) or as sub-assemblies (i.e. farm out mother boards, hard drives, etc.). Besides extending the useful life of the "latest and greatest" of bygone eras and helping to bridge the "digital divide" between ourselves and less technologically advanced populations, reuse enables us to spare the energy required for full-blown recycling (shredding, smelting, etc.)

E-scrap vs. E-waste: A superficial distinction with substantial implications

We don't waste! It’s only "e-waste" if we fail; we "mine" e-scrap in the interest of conserving precious natural resources like virgin metals and petroleum (used in the manufacturing of plastics), and we only recycle once reuse options have been exhausted.
