Over the past decade, the use of computers and other electronic items has increased significantly. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the United States discards more than 30 million computers each year. The EPA also estimates that only 15 – 20% of electronic waste (e-waste) is recycled.
So what happens when to old computers and electronic items when we purchase new ones?
Most electronic items wind up in landfills. For example, in a report by the United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP), it was estimated that nearly 70 percent of heavy metals in landfills stems from discarded electronics.
Nearly half of the states within the United States have laws regarding the proper disposal and recycling of electronic items. At Shred Ace, we make it easier than ever for you to safely and securely recycle your computer products and electronic items in Raleigh, NC.
