Recycle Electronics

Unwanted electronics amount to approximately 2 million tons of waste annually and it is unlawful to dispose of them in the municipal trash. Computer monitors and older TV picture tubes alone contain an average of four pounds of lead! Electronics can contain chromium, cadmium, mercury, beryllium, nickel, zinc, and brominated flame retardants. Millions of pounds of steel, glass, and plastic, and precious metals can be recovered by recycling electronics. Recycling also conserves natural resources, avoids the air and water pollution, and reduces greenhouse gas emissions that are caused by manufacturing new products.
