406 Recycling will start formally collecting electronics at people’s homes, picking up outdated or unwanted items, like computers, televions, personal devices like laptops, and entertainment systems. 406 Recycling says they’re launching the new service because many people say that they can’t transport heavy, outdated electronics.
The company says, depending on what needs to be collected, most services will be within the base rate of $50 per pickup, with additional fees for multiple CRT televisions, items requiring staff to use stairs, and mileage for household more than 5 miles outside of the City of Helena, East Helena, or Montana City.
406 Recycling already provides electronics recycling and data destruction collection to businesses throughout the greater Helena area and across the state. “Our initial focus has been on business collection and services to local governments,” says company owner Matt Elsaesser,” for household collection we provide monthly community collection events in partnership with Good Samaritan.” “However, we know that not everyone can transport their electronics and we have been providing residential collection for residents on a case by case basis,” he added.
