Top Five Reasons to Keep E-waste Out of Landfills

  • Landfills have been known to leach toxic chemicals into water sources and surrounding land.
  • Landfills are stinky and don’t look pretty.
  • It’s against the law in some states to put electronics into landfills.
  • Every time you trash something that should be recycled or reused, you add to the evil powers of a landfill…and a kitten dies.
  • Good things can be made from recycled electronic components, and only bad people don’t like kittens.

Make sure you are being responsible with how you handle your waste, especially your e-waste.  When your electronics have reached the end of their useful life, please look to having a certified electronics recycler do the recycling of your computers, cell phones, and other appliances.
