It’s important to recycle electronics to ensure that toxic materials are properly disposed of and to reduce our waste. Recycling e-waste also reclaims valuable and limited resources like copper and cold. For example, for every million cellphones recycled, as much as 3,500 pounds of copper and 75 pounds of gold could be reclaimed for use in new products.
We each play a crucial role in ensuring our electronics get recycled at the end of their useful life. Learn Why and How To Recycle Your Old Mobile Phone.
