Discarded electronics equipment returns provide an opportunity for the diversion of landfill-bound goods through bulk materials recycling. In this paper, we develop a decision model to select bulk recycling processing and reprocessing options for a take-back center that receives large quantities of similar products. We demonstrate the model's use for a generic take-back center example. The model is computationally tractable and provides sensitivity analysis on key parameters such as the metals commodity prices
