Current estimates are that 300 million computers monitors and televisions become obsolete each year and end up being either recycled, landfilled, dumped on the side of the road or stored. These items contain toxic and hazardous materials as well as precious metals, such as gold, silver and platinum and represent excellent opportunities for positive environmental impact if disposed of properly. Recycling, and/or reusing, instead of other disposal methods, helps save natural resources, reduce energy consumption in manufacturing of new products and has less negative environmental impact than mining for the metals used.
It is for these reasons that we encourage our citizens to hold their computers for our special collection events rather than throwing them into the landfill.
The links below will give you access to some of the recycling programs already in place nationally by electronics manufacturers. We continue to work locally to provide as many recycling/reuse opportunities as possible.
