Many companies struggle with where and how to safely recycle old electronics – or e- waste – that seems to accumulate at a faster and faster pace and which can pose environmental hazards if not disposed of properly. That is why recycling old electronics is so important. Many old devices contain toxic substances that include lead, mercury, cadmium, beryllium, polyvinyl chloride and chromium. Plus, recycling old devices saves energy. It also means fewer raw materials need to be drawn from nature to create new devices, saving energy, reducing pollution and creating fewer greenhouse gas emissions. What is better than recycling? Recycling with a Purpose!
