Free Computer and E-Waste Recycling

 

 

Most electronic devices contain a variety of contaminants such as lead, cadmium, beryllium, or brominated flame retardants that can enter our environment. Recycling recovers valuable materials from electronics that can be used to make new products. As a result energy and existing natural resources are conserved by extracting fewer raw materials from the earth, and air and water pollution caused by hazardous disposal is avoided. Safe recycling of electronics supports responsible management of toxic chemicals such as lead and mercury. Additionally, recycling reduces the amount of greenhouse gas emissions caused by the manufacturing of new products.
