E-Waste Recycling

E-waste is a popular name for electronic products at the end of their "useful life." Electronics compose the largest growing segment of our nation's waste stream. Some of these products can be reused, refurbished or recycled. If you do have e-waste, make sure to recycle it properly as these contain hazardous toxic chemicals. Computers, for example, contain lead, cadmium, mercury, chromium and polyvinyl chlorides - all of which have known detrimental effects on human health.
