Why Recycle Electronics?
- You'll help decrease the amount of toxins such as lead, mercury and cadmium that enter the environment
- Valuable natural resources such as gold, copper and nickel are recovered in the e-cycling process and returned to market in new products
- It takes less energy to recover and recycle natural resources than to mine them from the earth, reducing the use of fossil fuels and lowering greenhouse gas emissions
