Why it’s so important to recycle computers, laptops, smartphones and other scrap electronics.

Scrap electronics contain toxic heavy metals and chemicals. Using incinerators or landfills to dispose of these items allows toxic substances to be released into the air and groundwater, creating serious threats to public health and our environment. To ensure that your scrap won’t be dumped, always use a certified electronics recycler who follows media sanitization standards (SERI R2, NIST 800-88) and maintains State DEQ permits to collect and process electronic scrap.
