In the U.S., over 80% of discarded electronics end up in landfills. E-waste contains toxic materials like mercury and lead that contaminate the ground and water supply.
While e-waste contains hazardous materials, it also has plenty of useful ones that can be recycled. Aluminum, glass, copper, and more can all be salvaged and reused.
Do your part to give retired e-waste a new life. Here are some resources to help you find an e-cycling program in your area. Many manufacturers and retailers offer take-back or trade-in programs.
