Vintage Tech Recyclers is an electronics recycling company which disassembles electronics and computers to salvage their parts for use in new electronics and to prevent them from being sent to a landfill and damaging the environment. Located in Romeoville, IL, this company serves the greater Chicagoland area, including Hoffman Estates, Tinley Park, Aurora, Joliet, Oswego, Park Ridge, Shorewood, Collinsville, Downers Grove, Lisle, Westmont, Hinsdale, Bolingbrook, Homer Glen, Orland Park, Oak Lawn, Homewood, Warrenville, La Grange, Oak Brook, Wheaton, Carol Stream, Glen Ellyn, Lombard, Batavia, and West Chicago. Additional locations are located in Michigan, California, Kansas, and Pennsylvania. The company was founded in 2005 and meets the standards of e-Stewards, R2, ISO 9001, and ISO 14001. The company bases its model on a cradle to the cradle philosophy, focusing their attentions first on returning as much material as possible to the material stream rather than destroying or shredding product.

This company recycles outdated electronics, including household appliances, computers, and business products. All of the materials are broken down into their smallest components and then passed on to qualified vendors to be put back into the materials stream in hopes of being used for new electronics, thus avoiding being put into landfills and being given a new life in new electronics, which also reduces the use of virgin materials in new products. The company also provides secure data destruction, which can be performed on the client's site or off-site, and can be tracked and certified if necessary.
