One of my personal passions is recycling. I’ve made it a part of CIO Services, by incorporating green policies internally and by helping our clients recycle old equipment—computers, monitors, printers, parts, etc. However, I’ve discovered few of our clients know we provide this service so apparently I haven’t promoted it well enough.
Let me say it loud and clear: CIO will help you recycle all your technotrash!
To simplify this process, we’ve partnered with Somtech, a registered ILEPA collector of electronic waste, both commercial and residential. Somtech E-cycling is fairly new to the e-cycling business, but has been in the community for years recycling old/damaged cell phones via recycle bins in The Bank of Edwardsville branches, Shell Community Credit Union branches, and Anderson Hospital.
If simplifying or cleaning is on your New Year’s resolution list, grab all the electronics gathering dust in the closet and take them to any of their upcoming events. They’ll take pretty much anything with a plug…
- Cell Phones, Chargers, and their Batteries
- Rechargeable Batteries
- Printers/Fax Machines
- as well as CDs, tapes, old floppy disks, etc.

If you miss the events, you can still recycle—just give us a call!
Fees are nominal (free for our managed service clients!), and we handle those as a straight pass-through, no markups. If you ask us when we’re onsite, we can often take small loads back to the office with us, for our next delivery. For larger quantities we can coordinate a pickup directly with Somtech.
