E-Waste Concerns
SF Bay Area

Why is E-waste a Concern?

E-waste is a natural byproduct of time and progress. Many of the everyday items we take for granted including computers, monitors, printers, scanners, data storage devices, servers, networking systems, copiers, fax machines, radios, TVs, cell phones and smartphones all become obsolete eventually as we upgrade or our electronics fail. By definition, any of these items that can't be upgraded for better use or repaired are classified as e-waste.

Did you know?

  • The plastics used to build computers and other monitors often contain hazardous flame-retardants.
  • Flat-panel LCD displays contain mercury.
  • The circuit boards of many electronic devices, CRT monitors, and batteries contain cadmium, chromium, lead, mercury and/or other hazardous materials.

How many of the above devices are in your home and office? Most of your favorite electronic devices contain hazardous materials that can be harmful to both you and the environment we live in if they are improperly disposed of.

A recent study performed by the National Safety Council revealed only about 19 percent of obsolete computers in the US are recycled the rest are either stored or have met their end in municipal landfills or incinerators. If you consider 90 percent of Americans own some form of computerized device and that there are over 300 million people in America, you quickly understand the important role responsible e-recyclers play in modern society.

We encourage you to help protect the world we share by ensuring that your obsolete equipment is recycled or reused properly-whether you choose us as your e-recycling partner or not.
