Why recycle electronics?
More than 50 million tons of electronic waste are produced every year in the United States, the majority ending up in landfills. When thrown away in landfills, electronic devices and scrap materials release toxic chemicals and heavy metals, like mercury and lithium, that seep into groundwater, affecting both land and sea animals!
This is your chance to recycle unwanted electronic devices and scrap items in an environmentally safe way with ZERO landfill waste!
