Electronics recycling is an emerging solution that can lessen the impact of electronic junk in destroying earth. There are many good reasons to recycle old electronics instead of sending them to landfills.
In these days where electronics are as disposal as fast food containers, it is essential for people to be educated about the waste disposal problem that the planet is facing. As we know, technology has been being upgraded because most industries depend on new innovations to survive. But, the problem comes with these upgrades is that users discard obsolete units regularly. As a result, more electronic wastes are accumulated in the landfills.
At this point, electronics recycling takes a place. Electronics recycling is an emerging solution that can lessen the impact of electronic junk in destroying earth. There are many good reasons to recycle old electronics instead of sending them to landfills.
The first and most important reason for recycling electronics is to save our environment. Recent studies show that consumer electronics may be responsible for 40% of the lead found in landfills. Lead can cause damage Chromium, cadmium, and mercury are some of the most common harmful elements that seep into the soil and contaminate both water and air. These elements create hazardous environmental and health conditions for communities and individuals.
Second reason is that your data will be destroyed. In today’s computer based society, gaining access to other people’s personal details has never been easier. As a computer recycling company, a common concern amongst our costumers is what will happen to data stored on the computers once we collect them. When users input their details on the internet, the information is automatically stored on their computers- bank log in details, passwords, addresses etc. For businesses this is an even bigger worry, as they input other people’s private information. Entrusting your hard drive to a company that properly disposes of your device is highly important. NTRecycling is a licensed company that follows the standards of EPA when getting rid of e-waste. Your privacy is important for us, so it is highly protected while in our care.
Last but not least reason is that electronics recycling is becoming a law in the U.S. Over the last few years, more and more states have been passing and considering legislation regarding end-of-life electronics disposal and mercury content bans. There are currently 25 states with e-waste laws including Maryland and Virginia; and several other states are considering passing similar laws.
For all of these reasons, electronics recycling is very important for the future of environment, and it is the responsibility of all consumers, and that everyone takes on the responsibility of recycling all electronic devices and gadgets.
NTRecycling is a Federal Contractor company and our computer recycling is done domestically in full compliance with all local, state and federal regulations. This means that all of the electronics waste that we collect is recycled and reused in a positive way. NT Recycling currently has two locations in Beltsville, MD and in Arlington, VA.
