At GreenCitizen, we take transparency and accountability very seriously. We track all items we receive, ensuring they are either reused or broken down for their raw materials ethically within 150 miles of San Francisco. Nothing we collect get shipped overseas, and nothing gets dumped in landfills. We use the profits from the items we refurbish and resell to support our recycling eco-centers, providing a place where residents can responsibly recycle their electronics and e-waste. Our mission is to develop a sustainable metropolitan model that provides the most convenient and accountable way for individuals and businesses to reuse and recycle electronics.
