How Does ElectroCycle Help the Environment?
The paper that is shredded at ElectroCycle is recycled at a facility. This helps to reduce the amount of paper products that end up in landfill, prevents trees from being felled and keeps them absorbing carbon in the atmosphere, and reduces the carbon footprint of the supply chain. In other words, when you work with us, you’re playing a role in saving the planet. Recycling is not only limited to paper products we also recycle computers and related products.
Recycling is not only limited to paper products; we also recycle computers and related products. Computers often contain hazardous materials such as mercury, lead, and cadmium. When these electronics are sent to the landfill, it can contaminate the soil and groundwater. However, by recycling electronics, we divert these materials away from landfills. In addition, recycling allows for the recovery of components including metal, glass, and plastic which can be used again to make other products—reducing the need for new resources. Our e-waste and coputer recycling services ensure that these items are disposed of safely and responsibly. This helps to protect our environment from the harmful effects of these chemicals.
We recycle over 1 million pounds of electronic waste annually.
Computer Recycling and the Environment
Many of the electronic components of computers contain hazardous materials such as mercury, lead, and cadmium. Sending electronics to the landfill can lead to contaminated soil and groundwater. By recycling computers, hard drives, and similar electronics, we’re divert these materials from landfill. In addition, this process also allows for the recovery of components including metal, glass, and plastic. Our e-waste recycling services ensure that these items are disposed of safely and responsibly. This helps to protect our environment from the harmful effects of these chemicals.
For more than a decade, ElectroCycle has proved skill and environmental care in the recycling of discarded computer components. We make certain that hazardous items are correctly disposed of, and that reusable components are recycled in a sustainable manner. We also erase any personal information that may be kept on computer hard drives.
