Save the Earth while Providing your Electronics with the Proper Burial.

Posted: February 15, 2012 in Uncategorized

On average, a typical state in the U.S. has nearly four million computers being used daily. That just accounts for computers, and doesn’t begin to take into account the hundreds of thousands of other types of electronics we use each and every day. Truth be told, these devices become obsolete quickly, and are replaced by newer technology within a blink of an eye.

But what do you do with your old computers and other electronics?  Leave them out on the corner for your weekly garbage pick up? Certainly not! Those outdated items are too often thrown out, when they could easily be recycled. Plus, there are several benefits to recycling electronics. Recycling electronics conserves our natural resources and avoids air and water pollution, as well as greenhouse gas emissions.

Also, proper disposal of E*waste prevents electronics being sent to under-developed countries for processing, due to the cheap labor. These people are not qualified to dismantle these products, and do so without proper protection, exposing themselves and anyone around them to dangerous substances. The chemicals contained in these items can leave a negative environmental effect for many generations.

If you’re interested in E*waste recycling and at no cost to you, contact Upstate Metal Recycling. We’ll gladly take your E*waste and even offer to pick up your large quantities of recyclables!
