Electronic Recycling Benefits
New appliances and electronic devices are produced daily, and consumers upgrade often, piling up the older ones in their garages or closets. As a result, there is a need for a safe disposal method. This is where electronic recycling comes in handy.
So, why should you recycle your electronics?
Protects the Environment
Having some fluorescent tubes or lamps piled in your garage? These electronic items contain toxic mercury. Moreover, it is worse when thrown into a landfill because it can contaminate water if it gets to waterways.
Electronic recycling handles all the components safely; the experts recover and use the mercury to manufacture products like dental amalgam. If you have a lead-acid battery, the plastic is used to make other items, while sulphuric acid manufactures fertilizer.
Promotes Non-Renewable Recycling
The rising demand for new gadgets and appliances means certain metals and other non-renewable resources must be mined. Participating in electronic recycling helps reduce the mining of non-renewable resources.
So, when you are no longer using your laptop, recycling it will provide materials to manufacture your next device or TV. Rather than digging up more resources to make it!
