Why recycle your old computers and scrap electronics?

E-scrap, such as old laptops and smartphones, contains toxic heavy metals and chemicals. If burned in incinerators or disposed of in landfills these toxic substances may be released into the air and groundwater, creating unnecessary threats to our health and environment.


Thus, when disposing of your so-called e-waste, you should approach certified electronics recyclers who follow media sanitization standards (SERI R2, NIST 800-88) and keep updated State DEQ permits to collect and process electronic scrap. This ensures that your scrap will not be dumped.
