Electronic wastes (e-waste) overtime release toxic chemicals (i.e., lead, mercury, arsenic) which can seep into the ground contaminating water supplies and escape into the atmosphere. According to the EPA:
- 438 million new consumer electronics were sold;
- 5 million tons of electronics were in storage;
- 2.37 million tons of electronics were ready for end-of-life management; and
- 25% of these tons were collected for recycling
Divert your e-waste through recycling and help save our planet.
