Recycling Your Electronics

Recycling Your Electronics
08.29.2017

Tossing millions of computers, TVs, and cell phones into landfills poses serious health and environmental risks. Electronic equipment contains toxic materials, including lead, cadmium, and mercury, that may leak into the soil and ground water when disposed of in landfills.

Tossing millions of computers, TVs, and cell phones into landfills poses serious health and environmental risks. Electronic equipment contains toxic materials, including lead, cadmium, and mercury, that may leak into the soil and ground water when disposed of in landfills. In fact, the average CRT computer monitor contains four to eight pounds of lead on average. Keeping these and other materials found in electronic products, including precious metals and plastics, out of landfills also means they can be recycled, which conserves natural resources.

The good news is that you can de-clutter your home AND protect the environment. Most electronic components can now be reused, recycled, and diverted from the waste stream. For example, approximately 90 percent of computer contents can be reused or recycled. You can help by donating or recycling as many of your electronic items as possible through an environmentally friendly source, spreading the news about e-waste recycling and reuse options to your friends and neighbors, and encouraging your community and companies you do business with to expand responsible electronics waste recycling programs.
