When data protection matters most, trust SunE-cycle for your responsible electronic recycling needs.

We specialize in computer recycling. We protect our clients data and personal information, while keeping computers and electronic waste out of our landfills.


We take your old or unwanted electronic devices (computers, cell phones, or gaming systems, etc.) and deconstruct them.  We then separate the materials by commodity type for proper recycling, keeping the harmful electronic waste out of the area landfills. Our goal is to get as close to zero percent electronic waste as possible. We do not resell or refurbish any data-bearing devices such as your desktop computer, laptop computer, tablets, cell phone, and gaming systems.

Knoxville, TN 37917 




We do not currently accept CRT computer monitors or old box style televisions (flat screens are accepted). We specialize in recycling your old computers, laptops and desktops. We deconstruct them all the way down to your hard drive platter (this is the disk that contains all of your information), and then destroy that so that your information is safe. For a complete list of our accepted electronics click here.


SunE-cycle, a division of Sunshine Industries, is a nonprofit agency providing employment opportunities for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. So when you e-cycle with us, you are helping some great people have real job opportunities. In addition, we do not refurbish and/or resale your data bearing electronic items. Many e-cyclers do, which can lead to personal data being compromised. We will offer a certificate of deconstruction for your computer, cell phone, or even a gaming system, so that you know that it was destroyed and properly recycled, protecting your private information.


To donate your electronic items, you may drop off at our facility, Monday through Friday 8:00 am – 3:30 pm. If you would like a certificate of deconstruction, please print this form and fill in the information. Once your electronics have been deconstructed, we will email you the certificate of deconstruction.


For a small fee, we will be glad to pick up large orders in our box truck and provide you with a certificate of deconstruction. We deconstruct your computers all the way to the hard drive, including destruction of the hard drive platter which contains all of the information and/or data. Please call us to schedule a pickup.
