eCycle Your Electronics
May 4, 2009
According to the Consumer Electronics Association, Americans own approximately 24 electronic products per household, and that’s not even counting the amount they use at work or in school.
While the number of electronics in our nation increases, so does the level of electronics that are improperly disposed of in landfills. Electronic materials found in things like computers, cell phones, printers, mp3 players, and video players can be recycled and reused very easily, yet so many end up in the wrong place. To do your part for Mother Earth consider "eCycling" your electronics safely through a local program in your community.
If your community is not hosting an event or does not offer electronic recycling assistance, you can also feel free to contact the manufacturer, which usually has a program of its own to reuse parts or refurbish machines. You can also stop in to local electronics stores and ask if they have a program available.
