Why Recycle Electronics?
Recycling decreases the amount of toxins (such as lead, mercury and cadmium) that enter the environment, and allows for the recovery of valuable natural resources, such as gold, copper, and nickel. It takes a lot less energy to recover natural resources from recycled materials than to mine them from the earth, thereby reducing the use of fossil fuels and lowering greenhouse gas emissions.
