E-waste is an ever-growing popular, yet informal name for a variety of electronic products that have met the end of their "useful life." 

E-Waste

Recycle the following items:

  • Computers
  • Microwaves
  • Monitors
  • Laptops
  • Cell Phones
  • VCRs
  • Stereos
  • Copiers
  • Fax machines 

These are just a few of the common electronic products that fall into the e-waste category. As a result, it is not surprising that electronic discard is one of the fastest growing segments of our nation's trash.

Recycling raw materials from end-of-life electronics is the most effective solution to the growing e-waste problem. Most electronic devices contain a variety of materials, including metals that can be recovered for future uses. By dismantling and providing reuse possibilities, intact natural resources are conserved and air and water pollution caused by hazardous disposal is avoided. Additionally, recycling reduces the amount of greenhouse gas emissions caused by the manufacturing of new products. It simply makes good sense and is efficient to recycle and to do our part to keep the environment green.
