Reduces the Amount of Waste Sent to Landfills
Think about how many electronic devices you own. A lot, right? Now think about how many devices everyone on this planet owns, and how much space that all takes up. Recycling your electronics reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills, and contributes to slowing the devastating effects of pollution on the rest of the world.
Prevents Toxic Waste
When e-waste is taken to landfill sites, not only does the waste take up space, it releases harmful toxins that are extremely damaging to the environment and the health of living species. IT equipment contains chemicals like lead, mercury, beryllium, and cadmium, which all contribute to environmental pollution.
Reduces Manufacturing Cost and Energy
Approximately 2% of materials in your computer cannot be recycled, which means that 98% of the materials can! Anything from your monitor, keyboard, computer/laptop casing, cables, circuit boards, batteries, and more can be reused in manufacturing, meaning less cost and minimized energy consumption.
Secure Data Disposal
Just because you threw your device away, thinking that it will end up deep in a landfill somewhere doesn’t mean that your data and information are safe. Anyone anywhere could find your old computer or device and access private information. Securing data is always a must, and recycling your device will be your best bet at making sure no private information lands in the wrong hands.
Taking the time to properly dispose of your old electronic devices isn’t hard, and certainly isn’t time-consuming when you have a team like RAKI Electronics Recycling to help. Get in touch with us today to recycle your e-waste.
