So, what is Electronic Recycling, and why should I do it?
Electronic Recycling, or e-Recycling, is the responsible recycling of electronics. Evolving technologies, lowering manufacturing costs, and planned obsolescence, have resulted in a fast-growing surplus of computers and various other electronic devices. This equipment is a valuable source for secondary raw materials and when recycled are stripped of their most valuable components and sold.
Environmental Impacts of Recycling
Did you know that many old electronic materials are full of toxins that should not be disposed in a landfill? If those materials make it into landfills, they could potentially leak into our water and soil, damaging plants, animal life, and potentially impacting human life such as our food supply.
Electronic products such as TVs, computers and monitors also contain valuable and reusable materials including precious metals, which are expensive to mine and manufacture. Recycling electronics is very good for the environment:
- Conserves natural resources.
- Reduces pollution and keeps toxins out of the landfills.
- Conserves or saves energy.
- Conserves resources by extracting fewer raw materials from the earth.
