Why Recycling Matters

Recycling is the RESPONSIBLE thing to do.

Recycling is the process of separating, collecting and remanufacturing or converting used or waste products into new materials. Recycling helps extend the life and usefulness of something that has already served its initial purpose by producing something that is useable.

Donating your old computer to a school or charity can be a good option, but it is important to understand that obsolete equipment frequently becomes a burden for the charity. If the organization cannot easily use or upgrade your equipment, they then have to find a safe way to dispose of it. Always call first to make sure they can use your equipment.

Recycling is the RESPONSIBLE thing to do. It is up to the growing numbers of individuals and companies that want to inhabit a healthier planet to make a difference.

The Disposal Ban begins Jan. 24th of 2013. Act 108 requires these electronics be recycled from that point forward. No person may dispose of a covered device or any of its components with their solid waste.
