Why is ERecycling important?

Unwanted computers, monitors and TVs – referred to as electronic waste or “e-waste” – is the fastest growing waste stream in the U.S. With technology constantly changing, we replace our electronics every few years. In 2007 alone, Americans generated about 232 million units of computer and TV-related e-waste, only 18 percent of which was recycled. In addition, it’s estimated that 235 million more units are stored in our basements, closets and garages. ERecycling is a better option than disposal because is conserves natural resources. Electronics contain valuable materials – including copper, gold and aluminum – that can be recycled and used in new products. Recycling these materials prevents the need to extract virgin materials, conserving natural resources.

The office Joe Robach encourages everyone to take advantage of this great event. This is an easy and free way to properly dispose of any old electronics you may have around your home, while helping to protect our environment for future generations.
