WHY DO WE RECYCLE E-WASTE?
Protect public health and the environment
When e-waste gets thrown into landfills, our environment is being exposed to unnecessary toxins. ALL LCD screens contain Lead and Mercury. Circuit Boards, which are in everything that requires a battery or a cord, can be broken down and reused therefore eliminating the need to create new ones which requires high energy.
Conserve natural resources
Recycling e-waste recovers valuable materials that can be made into new products. As a result, we save energy, reduce pollution, reduce greenhouse gasses, and save resources by obtaining fewer raw materials from the earth.
As the need for electronics recycling increases, new business will be created and existing companies will expand.
Save landfill space
Our landfills are quickly filling up; by recycling your computers and other electronics landfill space can be saved for necessary items.
