FixMyPlaystation works with a level 4 recycler in the Saint Louis area. Printed circuit boards in the PS3 contain heavy metals, which are very terrible for the environment and a waste of resources if they are dumped into a landfill. We ensure this does not happen. . After this, they are turned over to MRC recycling (http://www.midwrc.net) so they are disposed of properly. Please do not throw your PS3 or the circuit boards in a landfill. If you are not going to keep it; let us dispose of it correctly.
