Help Protect the Environment

“Reduce, reuse, recycle” was a popular mantra of the 80s and 90s, encouraging citizens to separate paper, plastic, and aluminum from their trash.  However, with the exponential rise of electronics like computers, televisions, cell phones, laptops, printers, monitors and tablets – recycling has become more complex.  Known as e-waste, discarded electronics are problematic because they are an environmental hazard when tossed in landfills.  Many people don’t realize that all of the electronics they use contain hazardous chemicals that can be dangerous for our environment.  Elements like cadmium, mercury and barium are present within all of the electronics around your home or place of business.  These elements add to the amount of pollution that’s already present in our air, land and water if not disposed of properly.  Also, e-waste contains valuable metals like platinum and gold.  Recycling electronics with a certified electronics recycler like Turtle Wings is an easy way to help protect the environment and is the clear answer to our e-waste problem.
