E-waste can be environmentally harmful if disposed of in landfill as these items contain toxic and hazardous materials such as lead, mercury, cadmium, phosphorous and selenium. Recycling e- waste eliminates toxins from entering the environment and reduces the immense volume of recyclable materials being buried and lost forever.
You can responsibly get rid of your e- waste through the following channels:
