What happens to my electronics?
Electronics is one of the fastest growing waste streams in the world. Technology continues to evolve at an incredibly rapid pace, making electronics like TVs or computers easy to replace. The challenge of this rapid replacement is that these electronics contain some measure of potentially poisonous materials such as lead, mercury, cadmium, and others - which makes them toxic if not dealt with properly.
How are we doing?
