Electronic Recycling Facts
Obsolete computers or other electronics are a valuable source for secondary raw materials, if treated properly; if not treated properly, they are a source of toxins and carcinogens. Rapid technology change, low initial cost, and planned obsolescence have resulted in a fast-growing surplus of computers or other electronic components around the globe.
In 2008, the US generated 3.16 million tons of e-waste. According to the EPA of this, only 430,000 tons or 13.6 % was recycled. The rest was trashed – in landfills or incinerators.
Electronics contain Lead. Improper disposal of lead batteries can contaminate soil and water. Lead poisoning interferes with a variety of body processes and is toxic to many organs and tissues including the heart, bones, intestines, kidneys, and reproductive and nervous systems. Go Green, bring your electronics in for recycling.
