Why We Shouldn’t Throw Electronics Into Landfills

Lead, mercury, cadmium, and brominated flame retardants are among the substances of concern in electronics. If the products are not properly managed at the end of their life cycle it can cause environmental problems in the city the items are disposed in.  Old electronics can be taken apart and the metals can be refined so we don’t have to mine   the virgin ore at a much greater cost and with a larger carbon footprint. Dumping electronics in landfills deprive recycling facilities the ability to recover metals and introduce harmful toxic elements in the environment. Consumers of electronics can make a big difference in how much e waste ends up in landfills with just a little effort in applying the old (3 Rs) reduce, reuse, and recycle adage. Recycling rates for electronics are improving and we thank you for doing your part.
