WHY RECYCLE E-WASTE? Recycling and reusing electronic equipment reduces the amount of hazardous materials that may enter the environment including lead, mercury and other toxins. Recycling e-waste also reduces the quantities of electronic scrap that will be land filled in our city and region. A typical television or computer contains four to eight pounds of lead.
More than 565,000 pounds of electronics have been collected at these event over the past five years!
