Deliveries and Store Location
Refurbished items are sold online using Trademe’s services, MOLTEN MEDIA is not affiliated with Trademe and all logos are copyright by their respective owners.
If you are dropping off any items for recycling, we accept deliveries no later than 3:30pm on weekdays only, and there is a charge depending on what you have to drop off, but we do try to keep that low and affordable.
Computers and Parts
Computers generally get stripped with every component getting sorted and graded. Sought after, or newer systems and parts get refurbished for sale in our shop or used to build up systems for Community Groups or Charities.
Printers, Scanners & Photocopiers – At the moment we can not take Printers, as we are pretty full up. We don’t take scanners unless they have the metal on the bottom of them, as they are mainly plastic otherwise, and we can not recycle them.
Small Printers, Photocopiers and some scanners but not all, get shredded and sorted by another Christchurch recycler. The majority of toners we are not able to recycle, however printer cartridges are separately recycled. It would be appreciated if you could remove the cartridges from printers and put in a bag separate for us to recycle, and please remove toner, and dispose of, as we can not recycle this.
Monitors – WE DO NOT TAKE CRT MONITORS OR CRT TVs. THEY ARE THE BULKY ONES.
We do however take TVs, as in the Plasma, LCD, and LED TVs, with flat screens.
LCD monitors are tested and any working are put through to our shop for sale. Others are either stripped for parts and recycled, just like the TVs.
We take routers, switches and modems, and most any networking equipment
If saleable they go in our shop, otherwise they are either stripped and sorted or sent off for shredding.
We take all sorts of electronic cables.
With a few exceptions such as whiteware and other large electrical items, we recycle a manner of electronic equipment from household appliances to commercial machinery to laboratory equipment. If you are unsure about the items you wish to recycle give us a call or email and we can see if we can help.
We do need your help to keep our non profit charitable trust open. Every donation no matter how small or big is appreciated. We need a bigger place, as the one we are in is very small, and we have a large amount of equipment coming in regularly to recycle, as well as for providing more tables and space for accommodating more volunteers, who are needed desperately too.

Hard Drive Sanitation
With more of our information being stored electronically, the need to dispose of this data when the life of the computer is at an end has become of more of a concern.
We currently use for all disk we plan to reuse are wiped with a single pass overwrite with 10% disk verification. For businesses and individuals that require a certified destruction we currently do a 3 pass overwrite with a 100% disk verification. There is a $15 fee per hard drive for this service.
Recycling and Disposal Reports
Shareholders and other interested parties are increasingly asking that businesses operate in a environmentally sustainable way. Because of this we have started offering a detailed report on any equipment dropped off and its disposal. There is a fee for this service and this will depend on the amount dropped off and the detail of the report required.
There are a number of ways to be involved with Molten Media
1. Using Our Services
By recycling your old electronics, buying refurbished gear or getting your computer repaired or refurbished with us you are helping us to our core goal of supplying computers and other electronic equipment to community groups, charities and other worthy recipients within the community.
2. Becoming a Volunteer
Do you have spare time during standard office hours?
Volunteers are the backbone of any charitable trust and we are no exception, we are currently looking for volunteers to disassemble computers and other electronics for recycling.
Whether you want to improve your CV, learn about refurbishing computers or just starting out on an I.T career path and keeping busy between jobs or just feel good about yourself we are always on the look out for new volunteers.
You do not necessary have to have a lot of knowledge or skill in the I.T area but we do require people to be willing to learn (and to pass on their own knowledge), be honest, reliable and a sense of humor always helps. It is also very helpful if you are experienced with using hand tools
If this sounds like you, contact us for more information.
