E-Recycling Is a Win-Win for North Texas

Help Recycling Electronics

Did you know...?

  • Americans own approximately 24 devices per household, according to the Consumer Electronics Association.
  • U.S. landfills receive more than 2.4 million tons of electronic waste (e-waste) each year, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Many old electronics are full of toxic stuff that should not be disposed in a landfill, like arsenic, lead, and cadmium. If those materials make it into landfills, they can potentially leak into our ecosystem, damaging plant and animal life and impacting our food supply.

Help By Recycling Your Electronics

In addition to toxins, electronic products such as TVs, computers and monitors also contain valuable resources and materials – precious metals, copper, plastics and glass – all of which require energy to mine and manufacture. Recycling electronics not only keeps your old electronics out of our landfills, but also:

  • Conserves natural resources.
  • Reduces pollution.
  • Saves energy.
  • Saves resources by extracting fewer raw materials from the earth.
