E-Waste and Recycling
With awareness about the environmental impacts of sending electronic waste (e-waste) to landfill increasing, many households and businesses are keen to dispose of their unwanted electronic equipment in a responsible way.
Computers and other e-waste contain non-renewable resources such as tin, nickel, zinc aluminium and copper, as well as hazardous materials such as lead and mercury. Sending these products to landfill means the resources they contain are potentially lost and there is a risk that the hazardous substances may be released into the environment.
What can you do?
Almost 99% of the components that make up a PC can be recycled. By recycling we can avoid serious toxins, chemicals and heavy metals from going to landfill and polluting our environment.
