Why should be recycle electronics?

Electronics and the Environment

Did you know that electronics can be dangerous to the environment if not disposed of properly? If you have old electronics then you should find a company that will recycle the parts and dispose of them the right way so they are not polluting our environment. Many of the parts in electronic equipment contain hazardous materials such as lead, cadmium, lead oxide, barium and mercury. These substances can be hazardous to our environment if not taken care of responsibly. Search your phone book or go online to find a place to take old electronics and/or obsolete parts from computers, printers, and copiers, fax machines, cell phones etc.
