Why Recycle Electronics?
With continued advancement in technology and the integration of electronic products in our daily lives, the overall use of electronics has excelled at a rapid rate. It is estimated that Americans now own approximately 24 electronics per household!
Electronic Waste is a new and ever growing waste stream with an estimated 25% of discarded electronics being recycled. Prior to 1980, the term electronic waste had no meaning. Fast forward to today and over 3 million tons (6 billion lbs.) of electronics were processed by recyclers last year alone. The EPA has stated that electronic waste is one of the fastest growing waste streams.
There are many reasons to properly recycle electronics
Electronics contain valuable metals and components that can be reused in another manufacturing process
Recycling metals such as copper, steel and aluminum reduces the cost to mine raw materials thus reducing the cost to manufacture new goods
Electronics contain the following chemicals that can pollute the air & water without proper disposal and recycling:Cadmium, Mercury, Beryllium, Chromium, Barium, Hexavalent Chromium, Brominated Flame Retardants
