Did You Know?

Electronic waste (or e-waste) includes computers, entertainment electronics, mobile phones and other items that have reached the end of their useful life. You may also want to consider donating your machine. They can sometimes be refurbished and fixed to be donated to a variety of organizations and causes.

Fact: Electronic equipment contains lead, mercury, cadmium fire-retardant chemicals and arsenic. These materials are a hazard to human health and to the environment. Diverting e-waste from landfills and ensuring they are properly recycled is essential to protecting our environment.
