Why and How: Electronics Recycling

Recycle Electronics
Recycling raw materials from end-of-life electronics is the most effective solution to the growing e-waste problem. Most electronic devices contain a variety of materials, including potentially toxic metals that could be recovered for future uses. By dismantling and providing reuse possibilities, intact natural resources are conserved and air and water pollution caused by hazardous disposal is avoided.

Additionally, recycling reduces the amount of greenhouse gas emissions caused by the manufacturing of new products. It simply makes good sense and is efficient to recycle and to do our part to keep the environment green.

* Dumping 315 million computers into landfills amounts to the introduction of 1.2 billion pounds of lead, 2 million pounds of cadmium, and 400,000 pounds of mercury into waste streams. The U.S. EPA estimates that currently 80% of all discarded computer systems find their way into landfills. By comparison, approximately 70% of household appliances (stoves, washers, dryers etc) are recycled
