Are you thinking of throwing away that old laptop, netbook or desktop computer? Trashing an old computer or parts? Do you have something that needs repair that you want to get rid of?
In an effort to help you and our environment, along with reducing the amount of "electronic trash" that ends up ultimately in our landfills, we are looking to collect as many of these types of items as we can, either for recycling or reusing in other ways. We feel it is best to have electronics recycled as throwing away or dumping some electronics can be illegal due to the hazardous contents inside.
Why Recycle Electronics and Computers?
Electronics contain heavy metals, including lead, mercury, cadmium, and chromium that can be harmful if released into the environment. Recycling electronics ensures these materials are safely managed and that valuable materials such as steel, glass, and plastic, as well as precious metals such as copper, gold, tin, silicon, and aluminum are reclaimed for the manufacturing of new products. Reusing and recycling raw materials from e-waste conserves natural resources and avoids pollution.
