Did you know that old TVs and CRT computer monitors contain approximately 4 to 8 pounds of lead? Lead is a neurotoxin and improper disposal of these items allows this toxin to leach into the soil and groundwater, endangering ecosystems, wildlife, and humans.

By recycling e-waste, you help ensure the responsible disposal of harmful materials as well as the reclamation of useful resources. Find an e-waste recycling location near you.
